London #raspijam 4

  • November 29, 2012 · 7:00 PM

The next Raspberry Jam is scheduled!

The wonderful people at Mozilla are once again hosting us at the fantastic London HQ just off Trafalgar Square where we'll have access to a lovely great big space, wifi, a few HDMI monitors, snacks and refreshments.

Following the format of the last couple of Jams, you're invited to come along and grab a screen (first come, first served) to hack away at your latest pi powered creations.

We're also trying to get some speakers organised for the next event who will give talks or demos in some of the breakout rooms, so if you've got a subject or project you think people might be interested in, get in touch!

We'll be publishing the list of projects and speakers here.

Look forward to seeing you all.

Pete, John, Keith and Ben!

    Unfortunately I couldn't show my project last time because I hadn't time to setup everything and other problems....
    But if you were interested about it, I made a little video presentation:

    It's missing the live feed part but I will update the video soon

    Thank you for the organisation of the Raspijam meeting, it was very interesting. However for a newbie like me it was a lot to take in. I was wondering if there could be a beginners Raspijam meeting, especially for those of us in education, who would love to use the Pi in class, but need some hints and tips on how it can be used. I know there is lots of information via the web, but nothing can beat a practical 'hands on' lesson!

      Well I teach at a school in Bow, East London. Would that be any use, if I could arrange something? However we do not have the correct cables to attach the Pi to the school monitors.

      November 30, 2012

    • Keith D.

      That would be of use. What sort of inputs do the monitors have?

    I'll be bringing 8 pre-burnt SD-Cards to the Jam with the Official Release Candidate of RISC OS on them for people to play with if they like.

    There'll be a couple of people with RISC OS software etc to play with too.

    November 29, 2012

    • Hugh R.

      Nice, that'd be great. Is that version of Python for RISC OS not online?

      November 29, 2012

    • Keith D.

      I should have done more cards for last night! For those who didn't manage to get one off me this is the direct link for the disc image: http://downloads.rasp...­

    Thanks all that exhibited/organized. I really enjoyed the evening. Well done - Special thanks to Keith/ROUGOL and Bernard/Solidus for reminding me how much I loved RISCOS!

    Good job guys, i am a little disappointed that there weren't enough monitor. I really like the idea of the tunnel :-)

      Unfortunately the Mozilla people needed them for something else last night.

    Some really interesting stuff going on :)

    Thanks to everyone who put up with Gabba-fy! I remember telling someone I'd put a link to another or my projects in here because it's similar to the web part of gabba-fy that we don't have up on a server yet. Here's the link: http://www.codeoclock.net/newtracklately/

  • Christian

    Great, this time I really enjoyed it! Please keep going like that and do some more experiments

    Good crowd. Especially liked steering a robot car from a phone

    Great fun, lots of people put lots of effort in. I didn't get a chance to see alot fo them with my head down re writing the rpi car project form scratch after an SD card failure just before i left :( - never the less. It sort of worked by 10pm :)

    Lively, friendly, exciting. Lots of fun and lots to learn. A must-go event.

    There were two excellent talks and a host of interesting projects demonstrated by their Makers.

    Thanks, everyone, for a great evening.

    Very interesting

    I'll be demoing the #TechnoTunnel: I can't even begin to explain it, but it's Pi-powered and includes lego, Facebook Open graph, a SNES controller, a makey makey and lot of tin foil.

      Worry not I'm a DIYer and lover of the ad-hoc. Unfinished is just a stage on the way!

      Better something than nothing :)

    Will there be enough HDMI cables this time? I could bring a batch if they are needed...

    November 29, 2012

    • 555 (Pete B.

      Last month we had cables but sounds like we might not even have the displays this month :( By all means bring a few along if you have them, fingers crossed we'll have access to the screens. #sshparty

    Anybody would like me to take my Portable Raspberry Pi Datacentre to the meeting? Not much to test drive on top of it yet, though... http://giacec.co/SlqHcp

    November 27, 2012

    • Keith D.

      bring it along - more the merrier :-)

      November 27, 2012

    • Gianfranco C.

      Can the organiser share privately in advance the venue's guest wifi network, so that I can pre-configure the networking of the datacentre's "router" before I get there?

    Shouldn't this event be up on the Raspberry Pi forum:

    If I bring my RPi, can I get someone to test it as I think I have a duffed one, can't seem to get it to recognise a keyboard, tried a Logitech and dell keyboard with no joy. Thx!

    1 · November 26, 2012

    • 555 (Pete B.

      yeah, I've experienced the sticky key issue with my k400 too - might sound silly but I've a feeling it doesn't happen when the dongle is plugged into a powered hub. Certainly seems that way so far.

      November 27, 2012

    • Christian

      Once my wireless keyboard didn't work properly and I couldn't make it worked anymore so I bought a new one :P

    Unfortunately I can't now make this as I have a work related event to go to.

    However do check out the discussion I've just started about Code Club's upcoming Raspberry Pi Hack happening in December.

  • 555 (Pete B.

    Sounds great Romilly, we'll reserve you a room!

    do many things possible with pi

    Is that possible to have a talk about openCV with Raspberry? I found a lot of "bad" articles about this configuration but I guess that there is a good alternative to do face detection or object detection.
    Let's show to everyone what this little baby can do :)

    November 2, 2012

    • Christian

      I can't tell you so much :) I was playing with Opencv for a day and I gave up when I couldn't make it faster for my project

      November 17, 2012

    • Christian

      But I can tell you more about 3G dongle configuration and implementation of ada fruit 16chs servos
