As I’m sure you all know, we at Maker Faire UK are big fans of the Raspberry Pi, having published an article a while back on some of our favourite Pi projects. Not only that, but we’ve also confirmed that RP’s own Rob Bishop will be giving a talk at this year’s Maker Faire UK! So, without further ado, we just had to tell you about Raspberry Jamboree – a very special event being held by the RP folks.
The event has completely sold out, but the organisers are streaming a live webcast of the proceedings for a nominal charge of £2 plus eventbrite fees of 70p. Alan explained the reason for the charge to the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Frankly, we’ve had a peek and the programme looks absolutely fantastic. Confirmed speakers include the following:
Prof Steve Furber (Designer of BBC Micro), Pete Lomas (RPi Co-Founder), Rob Bishop (RPi Evangelist), Genevieve Smith-Nunes (Teacher), Alan O’Donohoe (Teacher & Jambassador), Dr Andrew Robinson (Pi Face), CarrieAnne Philbin (Teacher & Geek Gurl Diaries), Paul Hallett (Django Pi), Mike Cook (Raspberry Punnet), William H. Bell (CERN&MagPi Magazine).
