Over the weekend of March 3rd-4th 2018 hundreds of Pi Party events were held across the World to celebrate the 6th Birthday of the Raspberry Pi. Many of these were hosted by regular Pi Jam organisers. I attended the Cotswold Jam held at the University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham, UK.
Due to adverse weather conditions there was a chance of cancellation but luckily the roads we clear by Sunday morning.
Pi Party Photo Slideshow
Here is a video slideshow of the photos I took :
It features Andy Baker’s Raspberry Pi powered autonomous drone. This quadcopter runs Python and more details can be found on his website http://blog.pistuffing.co.uk/. Andy helps organise the Cotswold Jam and is happy to talk about his quadcopter development if you can attend one of the events.
Clare Sutcliffe (Twitter: @ClareSutcliffe) from the Raspberry Pi Foundation cut the awesome Pi shaped cake.
The retro arcade machines were provided by Stuart Fox (Twitter: @stuartfoxmusic). These helped entertain the kids (and Adults) in between workshops.
