Covent Garden Jam rocks!

Yesterday's Raspberry Jam at Covent Garden was amazing.

The Dragon Hall was packed with Raspberry Pi enthusiasts of all ages and the whole event pulsed with energy.

I ran the Shrimping It! workshop  with some very welcome help from Jim Darby (@HackerJimbo). I'd never had a group that large, and I'd managed to bring the wrong glasses, so Jim saved the day.

By the end of the day we had lots and lots of LEDs blinking under program control, and lots of experimenters who'd discovered how breadboards work and what a capacitor looks like.

The organisers did a fantastic job, and made everyone very welcome. I'll certainly be going again.

The next Covent Garden Jam will be on 20th June, and I've got the date in my diary.
