What’s so special about the MK Jam?
The Milton Keynes Jam is rather special because it is held at the National Museum of Computing, which is on the same site as Bletchley Park. They’ve got the oldest working digital computer in the world – the WITCH.
Also there is Colossus – the famous code-breaking computer from World War 2. If you like computers, it’s an awesome place. (And if you don’t like computers what on earth are you doing reading this page?)
It’s the perfect home for a Jam.
What’s in the Jam then?
We usually have introductions, then about 2 hours of open session, where people lay out their demos and talk to each other. There is a perfect opportunity to ask questions and get help with something you might be stuck on. It’s great for meeting people, getting inspired and sharing ideas too. We usually have several teachers present and several experts in various areas. If you’re having trouble with a software or hardware project, bring it along and someone will probably be able to help you.
If you are a beginner it’s a great opportunity to come along and see what the Raspberry Pi is all about.
After the Jam, you can go round the museum. If it’s your first visit to the Jam, you can visit the museum free of charge.
I am planning to be there (I hope that’s a plus) with my Wiimote controlled Gertboard demo. Come and have a go.
