Inspire creation with technology such as the Raspberry Pi over a pint.

We encourage people to stand up and speak about their Raspberry Pi experiences, cool projects and give easy tutorials. Many people bring along their projects to show off (quite right too) and get some help and advice with some sticky problem.

We have had some inspirational speakers and demos of remarkable projects - check them out on our Prezi.  There were also people asking how to get going straight out of the box it came in.  The more experienced members would love to help those new to Raspberry Pi etc.

All are welcome!

    I would like thank all the guys who helped me with starting a python script at boot, the man from Quick to Wire and several others.
    I have at last managed to put all their tips together, and got it to work.
    Thanks again

      As a raspberry Pi novice I feel a bit silly trying to give instructions to you clued up guys.
      Grandmother and eggs springs to mind, but if that is what Matt wants I will comply.
      Here is a link to my Dropbox (If it works on this forum) of a PDF of my notes on how to do it again.

    The Dogs were pretty epic though :-) The Chips were fantastic !!

    Due to a slight booking error we had somewhat more Pint than Pi... but that wasn't an issue

    More Pint than Pi this month due to a double booking of the meeting room

    I need to remember to write this down. Last night I was trying to explain how ssh with X windows forwarding works. It's a little freaky, and very clever :)

    You have two machines, both with X windows on, the client end machine has a keyboard, mouse and screen and the machine you want to run the app on doesn't have to have them.

    On the client, open a terminal and type

    ssh -X username@nameOrIPofOtherMachine

    (the -X is the important bit here, it means 'setup X Windows forwarding')

    log in, and you've got a command-line shell of the remote machine, if you run a graphical program e.g. 'xclock' or 'scratch' the program runs on the remote machine but the window pops up on your local one and your keyboard and mouse work just as you'd expect.

    It's a bit like remote desktop or VNC, but it can work on one application at a time, rather than showing you a whole desktop.

    You can even install X windows on MS Windows with Cygwin/X or Android and IOS phones and use it to connect to your Pi.

    Great to meet like-minded folk, very friendly and easy to chat with. A couple of demos of what the pi could do were also present which was excellent.

    Hey! I'l love to attend a future 'pint', only found out about this one today so can't get an evening pass at this short notice ;-)
    But look forward to sharing stories of pi hacking :)

      Hey Jon, come along to the next one if you can, it will be good to see you again after all these years, from when we worked together on some cool Java projects back in about 2001 (ish)!!!

    Sadly I can't make this week - hope you have a good session.

    We had originally scheduled a meeting automatically on the last Tuesday of every month which included New Year's Eve. This would not be a well attended meetup so we have cancelled it.

    The good news is we have already arranged talks for the meetup at the end of January and are hoping for a wave of interest after Raspberry Pi's first year as a 'main stream' Christmas present.

    We hope you're all buying Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, Beaglebones and electronics kits for your Nieces, Nephews, Sons and Daughters! This is what the Raspberry Pi foundation encourages - inspire those children!
