Shrimping It at Covent Garden tomorrow

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's session at the Covent Garden Raspberry Jam.

There's lots to see and do. The Minecraft session is bound to be popular, and I'll be running another Shrimping It! workshop.

Making the Shrimp

The Shrimp (created by Cefn Hoile and friends) is a simple, low-cost Arduino clone on a breadboard. Workshop participants pay £10, for which they get a kit of parts, a breadboard, and a USB programmer, and a copy of Making the Shrimp.

That's a low-cost e-book which contains a step-by-step illustrated guide to building the Shrimp. (Disclosure - I wrote it).

We've limited numbers to 20, as that's the largest group size I can comfortably manage. The tickets sold out a couple of weeks ago, so we're expecting a full house!

Shrimping on your own

If you haven't booked for tomorrow's workshop, you can buy the parts from the Shrimping It! website and build it on your own. The parts cost just over £10 including postage to the UK, and for the next couple of days blog readers can get the e-book book for just 99c + VAT. To get your copy at the discounted price, click here.
