Raspberry Pi Roundup - 11th September 2015

Podcast Wars

A couple of weekends ago, Tim Richardson and I (having recovered from the local chilli festival) were interviewed by the guys over at The Pi Podcast about Pi Wars. It was a great experience and I’m really happy these people in particular have taken over the mantel of providing a regular audio series about the Raspberry Pi. They’re knowledgeable, approachable and, vitally important,enthusiastic. The podcast this time is just over half an hour in length and you can listen to it here. It’s not just about Pi Wars, either – they cover the SenseHAT, Skycademy, the CamJam EduKits and all kinds of things!

If you want to get tickets to Pi Wars, head over to the website for more details. Tickets are £3.50 for adults and free for kids 16 and under.


Boris Adryan is running a workshop at CamJam on 12th September and, ahead of this, he’s published his learning material. The workshop is all about how you can use Javascript and NodeRED to interact with the Minecraft Pi Edition API. It’s fascinating stuff – take a look here.


Lots of us followed the exploits of the recent Skycademy on Twitter and on the HabHub tracking website. Although we were basically following icons on a Google Map, I found it enthralling and it was great to hear the constant updates from the teams as they prepared, launched and then chased their balloons across the East of England countryside.

Richard Hayler (pictured) was one of the lucky participants and has now blogged extensively about his experiences over the three days. Read his account here.
