Raspberry Jam served to 35 young hackers at PyCon UK
After three days of talks, networking and learning from the brightest minds in Python programming, PyCon UK culminated with an Raspberry Jam – the coming together of programmers, teachers and 35 children to play, hack and program with the Raspberry Pi and Python.
Education was a very prominent theme at this year’s conference and the Raspberry Jam, sponsored by Bank of America, was proof positive that we can all play a part in the much-needed revolution of the UK’s tired and broken approach to IT education.
The Jam itself was hosted by Alan O’Donohoe and organised with Python UK’s Nicholas Tollervey. We sat down with Nicholas to delve deeper into this political hot potato and learn what part Python and the Raspberry Pi can play in securing the next generation of computer scientists.
