We had our very first Pi Jam back in Sat Aug 11 @ Science Gallery. Overall it was a success even though we learnt lots of what can go wrong will go wrong. And it's OK to FAIL as that's the jam is about, to learn from things we don't understand and ask others for help. Vicky wrote a post about the day, you can read all about it here: http://www.codinggrace.com/news/first-dublin-raspberry-pi-jam-2018-8-31/
The focus of the next jam (hosted by TOG Hackerspace) would be more on bringing your own equipment and work through projects, and we want to emphasise that it is not a workshop, it's an event where you feel free to ask questions and for help as well as share your own project and ideas to one another.
This event is open to all levels.

YES. You are welcome. Events we run or partner in are diversity friendly.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Whether you are new to Raspberry Pi or have an ongoing project, this is the event for you. For those new to this, you can check out what the hobbyists are working on, like a live demo.
And you will be at TOG Hackerspace who runs regular microcontroller nights, so you can check out the space and talk to their members, some of whom will be helping out on the day if you have questions.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a workshop. It's all self-driven, self-learning day of fun and experimentation, it's ok to FAIL. :-)
The organisers are not Garda vetted or taken any child protection courses. By law we are required to have both. Because we are all volunteers and event is held in different venues, we decided it would be best to focus on providing this event for adults only.
The National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 to 2016 provide a statutory basis for the vetting of persons carrying out relevant work with children or vulnerable persons. The Act also creates offences and penalties for persons who fail to comply with its provisions. The Act stipulates that a relevant organisation shall not permit any person to undertake relevant work or activities on behalf of the organisation, unless the organisation receives a vetting disclosure from the National Vetting Bureau in respect of that person. Garda vetting is conducted on behalf of registered organisations only and is not conducted for individual persons on a personal basis. If you are seeking employment or intending to volunteer with an organisation which conducts relevant work, you may be asked to make an application to be vetted.
The Children First Act 2015 (the Act), which was signed into law on 19 November 2015, puts elements of the Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children on a statutory footing. The legislation was a key Programme for Government commitment, and forms part of a suite of child protection legislation which includes the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts, 2012-2016 and the Criminal Justice (Withholding of Information on Offences against Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012.
All participants bring their own equipment (laptop, Pis, electronics, and so on).
Coding Grace has 4 Pi-Tops with its kits and various electronic components for anyone who's new to Raspberry Pi and want to play around with it. There will be some projects from Raspberry Pi printed out so people can go through them on their own time.
You order your own electronics from the following online stores:
RS Ireland is the official distributor in Ireland of the Raspberry Pi and long term partner
Check out TOG's page on info on how to get to TOG via walking, cycling, bus, driving: https://www.tog.ie/location/
No, but TOG has a kitchen where you can make your tea/coffee provided you tidy and clean up after yourself.

Pythonista, but normally found organising various tech events, and now heavily involved in diversity initiatives like Coding Grace, PyLadies Dublin, and Women in Technology and Science (WITS Ireland).
Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
