On Saturday, there was a special event held in Manchester, UK called a Raspberry Jam. A Raspberry Jam is when lots of Raspberry Pi experts talk about the Raspberry Pi to people who either used the Raspberry Pi or are interested in learning how to use one. I woke up at 5:30 A.M. on Saturday so I could watch the Raspberry Jam live (UK time is 5 hours ahead of my time here in Virginia). My dad had signed us up to attend the Raspberry Jam online, so we could watch the Jam and send in questions by using Twitter. If you’re interested in attending future Raspberry Jams, here’s a link to a site that tells a bit about them and how to sign up for one: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/tag/raspberry-jam If you’re into the Raspberry Pi, I suggest you think about attending a Raspberry Jam, either in-person or online. It was really helpful to my dad and me. We have lots of good ideas for new projects and a better idea of just how much our Raspberry Pi is capable of. I hope a Raspberry Jam can do the same for you.
Here are some links to some of the websites mentioned in the Raspberry Jam:
Geek Gurl Diaries-video tutorials of things you can do with the Raspberry Pi.
Laser Bots-a cool video of a project done by university students using the Raspberry Pi. You have to watch this-it’s super cool!
Tank Project-Another project done by university students.
Turbo Scalextric-Another project done by university students.
Pi Moble Phone Controlled Arduino Rover-Another project done by university students.
Codecademy-A website that teaches people how to code. (I’ll talk more about Codecademy in another blog)
I hope you enjoy looking at some of these websites!
