On the 10th May we saw another Raspberry Pi Jamboree or ‘CamJam‘ launched, and I think it is fair to say it was the most eventful Jam to date in terms of activities and workshops. Brilliantly organised by Michael and Tim – and very well facilitated by the Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge, thanks to Andy Batey .

See the full authorised writeup from Michael Horne at the CamJam website here
or the RaspberryPi foundation here.


This was a  hugely successful family event, everybody involved.
