Kia ora Raspberry Sound Cats,

On the weekend I was playing with Sonic Pi, software for the Raspberry Pi that lets you use code to make sound. So let us have a jam this Wednesday.

The next meeting is from 6-7:30pm Wednesday, 27th August 2014 at Treshna in the EPIC building. The external doors at the EPIC building will be locked, so send me a text message on 027 326 7676 and I’ll come let you in. Please R.S.V.P. to benet [at] starlifterdigital.com by 5pm Tuesday, 26th so that we know how many people are coming and how much gear we need.

Also on the horizon is an event called THATCamp to be held at the University of Canterbury. THATCamps stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” It is an unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. I’ll be there representing the world of Raspberry Pi and it’d be great to see a few Jammers there as well.

Many thanks to our partner PiShop.co.nz and our continuing supporters Treshna and Metasolutions.
