Raspberry Pi Introductory Session

Just as we were getting started.

Tonight Emma-Jane, Simon, Neil and myself did our first “Raspberry Pi” event. Thanks to Emma-Jane’s special trip to the supermarket we even had some actual raspberry pi’s to eat, which was nice.

The event was organised for local schools and colleges who want to find out more about the platform and how it can be used for teaching and fun. Simon showed off the neat way that you can interact with Minecraft from within a Python program and I told my polar bear joke. Again. It was nice to see so many people who were keen to work with this splendid little piece of technology. You can download the slide deck for the presentation from here. If you want to find out more about my Raspberry Pi powered arcade table you can find out here. And yes, it is still “nearly finished”…

We are repeating the whole thing tomorrow, including probably the polar bear joke….
