NYC Raspberry Jam Meetup #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
All around the world, “Raspberry Jams” have been forming to provide folks experimenting with the Raspberry Pi with a local venue and community where they can share projects-in-progress and learn more about Raspberry Pi and embedded development.
Well, here’s an upcoming Jam in our neck of the woods, organized by Trammell Hudson: the NYC Raspberry Jam:
Bring your projects, your ideas and see what other hackers are doing with their small Linux boards. There will be a demo of adafruit’s WebIDE, which makes getting started with the Pi as easy as a rocket-powered Arduino.
I’m going to be attending this one and bring some resources to help NYC makers get started with the Adafruit WebIDE. Have you found a Raspberry Jam in your area? If not, maybe you should start one! (Please drop us a tip about what you create and share!)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
