Bristol RaspberryJam 20.08.12 with HD Video

Oh, we had a blast at Bristol RaspberryJam on Monday. Unfortunately, geeks in the West Country were forced to choose between our jam or the opportunity to watch Doctor Who being recorded in Bristol city.

Now, thanks to the marathon efforts of Matt Hawkins of RaspberryPi-Spy, we have an HD recording of the Jam (not Dr Who). The video shows the entire talks session and obviously does not include the ‘jam spreading’ sessions at the beginning and end of the evening or the demonstration suite. Trevor’s blog post published before the evening started explains what to expect, but his post RaspberryJam post is much more comprehensive and concise, highly recommended reading. It also suggests the next steps forward.

If you’re looking for an entertaining highlight, click here to listen to George, 9 years old asking Rob Bishop of Raspberry Pi a tricky question. The book that Rob refers to is a free download from here, and for those who still want to know, the technical answer is here. George has now started his own blog.
