This event will be both a Jam and also a planning session for a bigger Jam!
Special guest will be Dave Akerman who will talk to us about his amazing Raspberry Pi project beating Felix Baumgartner's 39km skydive with a Teddy Bear.
If you already have a Pi bring along your projects to show everyone else. If you don't have a Pi, or have one and don't know what to do with it, bring along your questions and enthusiasm!
The venue is in the Southwark Rooms downstairs bar, which is a large room with booths round the sides, ideal for setting up demos on each table. However there is only one big screen, so if you can bring a monitor along that would be very useful.
We will also be discussing plans for a bigger, more child friendly, London Raspberry Jam. If you know of a suitable venue or want to volunteer to help, make yourself known.
Hope to see lots of you there, brimming with ideas!

Something need to be done about this meetup.
4 months ago I saw that this group is going to be deleted in 24 hours and I decided to keep it going and I stepped up as an organizer just to save it. Some time after this I left London so I am not really the best guy to revive this and organize Raspberry Jams. I would love to step down.

Having said that I am an organizer of Makerland (http://makerland.org) - a new kind of event organized in Warsaw, Poland in March 2014. 3 days of talks and intensive workshops on Arduino, Raspberry Pi, 3D printing, robots and everything you can label as 'Internet of things'.
The last conference I organized was DjangoCon(http://love.djangocircus.com) - just take a look to get a feeling of how awesome Makerland is going to be..
So if you're a beginner in IOT, Raspberry Pi etc, Makerland is a place for you. It's cheap and fast to get to Warsaw and you can find very affordable accomodation there.

Getting back to meetup.. I am open to all scenarios. We could cancel this meetup, I step down and one of you could start organize another one. Alternatively you guys, could meet on 29th on October and talk about it. But I am afraid I won't be able to come.
Let me know what you think.
