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!)
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
