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)
