by Vicky Twomey-Lee in DublinThanks to Lynn for sharing her inspiration from our #RaspberryPi workshop. It's a raspberry pi hooked up to my Maplins robotic arm - trying to teach it to prepare the tea! Anyone else have a Pi project to share? Leave your comments below. :-) There's also a vid I took of Mick testing out his LEGO motor after hooking up with the Pi with a curious kitten in tow.
by Vicky Twomey-Lee in DublinThanks to everyone who made this workshop possible! It was a very early morning start for everyone especially the staff at Facebook and the mentors. I can say the food was delish and nice touches with the Raspberry-themed smoothies and desserts (shout out to Urban Kitchen)
by Vicky Twomey-Lee in DublinSome exciting news... although if you read the title, it's already a spoiler. We will be running an intro Raspberry Pi Workshop in January 2014.

by Vicky Twomey-Lee in DublinOur first introduction to Unity was mentored by Owen Harris (@theAllThing) of bitSmith Games on Monday 25th November. Thanks to Science Gallery for hosting our workshop. After a slight delay in starting the workshop, and making sure everyone had the latest version of Unity installed on their laptop, we got stuck into it by loading an sample Unity project, and learnt the basic move, panning, rotating, scale as well as how easy it can be to get lost in the 3D virtual world when placing objects on the plane.
