Had such a great time with our Indiegogo campaign. I really can’t believe we raised £1207 for our South London Raspberry Jam. Our tickets are just about finished (86 tickets so far) and 50% have been taken by Autism/Tourette’s Syndrome families. Thanks mum for putting in all that hard work too. I’m very excited by the Kano workshops planned for our Raspberry Jam and a visit from David Whale of ‘Adventures in Minecraft‘ – fame. We hear he’s got some awesome new material!
On Saturday it was Dragon Hall’s CoderDojo London‘s first birthday and as usual it was buzzing. Their events are always totally awesome with a diverse range of people joining in. Wendy is always there to make sure it all runs smoothly and everyone listens when it is Show & Tell time. I attended my Hyper Local YRS Westminster – there at the same time because Wing (YRS Ambassador) has arranged to run sessions from Dragon Hall! It’s great as I could attend both at the same time. It was nice to catch up with Frank & his son, Hacker Jimbo, Luca, Zak, Louis and Krish. I presented my App idea, after an Ideation workshop, linked to a weather forecast API and a talking Raspberry Pi sending out alerts as you go towards the front door. On the train home, when me & mum discussed it some more – some people on the train joined in and said they loved the idea!
In the next blog I will be doing an in-depth review of our South London Raspberry Jam. Until then have a nice week.
