Discuss the Pi over a Pint: Raspberry Pint London @Raspberry_PI #piday #raspberrypi
Raspberry Pint London is a community of makers in London, England that meet up to discuss their latest pi endeavors and upcoming projects over a pint in a pub. If you’re local, check out their upcoming meetings! If not, we think this sounds like an idea worth replicating.
Meet up over a pint and meet other makers, technologists, educators and people-in-sheds engaged in using or simply interested in the new wave of affordable and accessible technology lead by the Raspberry Pi. We are a community formed to inspire the use of open source hardware and software in projects for fun, education and creation through technology. We will meet for a pint on the last Wednesday of each month (maybe more if there is demand) – looking forward to meeting other like-minded souls and figuring out how this community can be produced.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!

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.
