For many years, Raspberry Pi enthusiasts have gathered in person to meet each other, show off their projects, share knowledge, and learn new skills. To support these gatherings, we’ve brought back our event listings website so that you can locate Raspberry Pi community events — often called Raspberry Jams — which happen all over the world.
On the new website, you’ll notice there are a bunch of virtual and in-person events coming up soon, so head on over and hopefully you can find an event near you. You can also subscribe via RSS or iCalendar feeds so that you can keep tabs on new events as they’re posted.
If you can’t find an event in your area, feel free to start one! It doesn’t need to be a big fancy affair. Even just a few people gathering in a local library can constitute a really worthwhile community event. If you decide to run a Raspberry Pi-focused community event and you want to see it listed on our website, please use this form to tell us about it. And feel free to subscribe to our mailing list to get updates intended for community event organisers.
We want to meet you
All of us at Raspberry Pi absolutely love getting out to events and meeting makers, engineers, enthusiasts, and designers who create with and use Raspberry Pi technology. Our new event listings also include events where you can meet our team at industry trade shows and hobbyist festivals all over the world. And if you come find us, you may even be able to get your hands on some free swag.
For example, we collaborated with one of our Approved Resellers, Melopero, to set up a booth at Maker Faire Rome in October. We had a blast meeting literally thousands of makers and talking to them about Raspberry Pi Pico microcontrollers and our RP2040 chip.
Keep an eye on the event listings and stay connected with us on social media to find out where we’ll be in the future.
Back at it again
After a bit of a hiatus, we’re excited to see lots of in-person events coming back into full swing. We hope that the new events website will help foster new connections between Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, and help grow this amazing community even more. In my view, this is just the first step towards improving the way we support Raspberry Jams and the Raspberry Pi community. Stay tuned for more.
