Our 3rd Raspberry Jam event was again hosted at the University of Suffolk (UoS), for people of all ages, to find out and learn more about the Raspberry Pi. People cam to see how people are connecting switches, motors and even Twitter to this extremely popular and cheap computer. Programming events, triggers and outputs to control the real word and much more on the day. Sign up to our mailing list to find out about our next event and how people have made a business idea come to reality using the Raspberry Pi and some cheap components. Bring your children along to really be inspired.
