Eagle Labs Raspberry Jam

When I saw on twitter last June / July that Barclays were opening an Eagle Lab in Birmingham(Les Pounder's retweet was the reason that I saw it :). I then asked them if they would follow the Cambridge Lab by having a Raspberry Jam?  they seemed open minded to the idea..... well in August we had the 1st Eagle Labs Jam about 18/9 people turned out in what is a super plush building smack bang next to Aston Uni in Birmingham.

At the 1st event I had help from the very kind Martin O' Hanlon, Spencer Organ and Scott Turner who kindly gave talks.

For the second event we had about 19 people again and Martin returned to hack with breadboards and stuff like this
with a very keen chap from Leamington.

a famous box....

A massive thank you to the chap who traveled for 4 hours to come to an event I have organised, this was very humbling.

Stewart Watkiss aka Penguin tutor came with neopixels galore and a big thank you for your continued support in 2 recent Jams in August in Coventry.
Spencer Organ kindly ran his Festive Minecraft Python coding session with his Pi Top Ceeds in his travel suitcase most impressive indeed that arrangement. (For the record 6 ceeds).

Lastly there was even a bit of Pi Zero Retro Pie gaming going on.....

A massive thanks for all the help from Spencer and Stewart and Martin.  Plus Tim from Code Club for coming to. 

Many thanks to Barclays Eagle Labs for proving a free community space in an awesome building. 

See you all again for Eagle Labs Jam 3 later this summer. 

Over :)
