Park hosts first 'Raspberry Jam' in South West

23.08.12

            

One of the first ‘Raspberry Jams’ in the world has been hosted by Bristol and Bath Science Park where people from across the South West were able to get hands on with the popular mini computers.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer, which costs just £25, and was developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in order to encourage the teaching of basic computer science in schools by making it more hands on.

The Raspberry Jam organisation is a voluntary movement which gets Raspberry Pi owners and interested parties together, to share experience and ‘jam’. So far, ‘jams’ have been held in London and Cambridge where the Pi was originally designed by a charitable trust.

The product is so popular that it can be difficult to buy and some of those at the Park’s ‘jam’ were keen to try it out.

The free tickets for the Park’s first event were ‘sold out’ in 5 days. The 140 attendees represented a true cross-section of the Raspberry Pi community, from young future engineers to retired people.

Richard Pitkin, director of the Park’s Innovation Centre, said: "We were delighted to host the first Raspberry Jam in the region. It was fantastic to have Rob Bishop from the Raspberry Pi Foundation here with us at the Park and the information and knowledge exchange between all the people involved was inspirational. The event was such a success we hope to do more in the near future."
