Exeter Pi Jam Feb 2018
This month was the usual mix of robots, raspberry Pi, arduino, etc
About 12 – 15 workstations were set up with a range of activities to choose from:
Minecraft hacking with the Minecraft API software as well
We also had various robots based on a variety of technologies including
Once again the this proved popular, with future potential hackers learning coding, hardware hacking etc.
As well as a discussion a 3 node Kubernates container cluster, which one of the attendees brought along, this can hopefully be demonstrated at a ater event. Some of this discussion also centred around how Kubernates can self heal so that if a node fails then workload can be re-distributed.
We also had a quick look at a Crumble starter kit, which is really easy to fit together and designed to be robust. The kit consisted of a chassis, power block, motors, buzzer and sensors such as a Line following unit, which is essentially here, 2x IR LEDs and a LED sensor.
Hopefully will get to look at both the above at a future jam and maybe even at the Tech Jam in Paignton.
Thank you once again to Simon and Ian from 2.times do for presenting another successful jam.
