Flickr Pool Friday: Raspberry Jam NYC #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Raspberry Pi meetup with Justin and Tyler Cooper demoing the Adafruit WebIDE
Last night was the debut Meetup of the “Raspberry Jam NYC”, and the host Trammell Hudson invited Adafruit to attend. I brought Raspberry Pi stickers and details about Adafruit and our Raspberry Pi offerings.
Adafruit staffers Justin and Tyler Cooper, the core developers of the Adafruit Raspberry Pi WebIDE, were able to Hangout with us to give a short presentation about the python visualizer and live debugger features. They shared one of their weekly WebIDE videos and fielded from the delighted sold-out Meetup crowd.
