Hi All, We just wanted to create a post clarifying the situation in regards to the Coronavirus(COVID-19) illness.
This months event, this Saturday 14th March will still be taking place. Raspberry Pi have passed down a few points of advice, which we would ask you follow:
Please wash your hands with soap throughout the day, especially before we stop for pizza at lunchtime.
If you are exhibiting any of the symptoms, please consider giving this month’s Jam a miss. The initial symptoms of COVID-19 to look out for are a fever, or a persistent cough lasting a few hours or longer.
If you are unwell and cannot attend, please get in touch for a full refund to your ticket, even on the day of the event.
Both we and our hosts at MMU are monitoring the advice being given by Public Health England, and will be following the recomendations provided by them. This may affect Jams in the coming months, so we’ll keep you up to date on any schedule changes as they arise.
In the meantime, we hope to see you at this weekend’s event!
Workshop 19 covers the HTML and CSS, the languages that most web pages are made with.
Most pages on the World Wide Web are text documents written in HTML (HyperText Markup Language). A ‘stylesheet language’ called CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is often used to change the visuals of the HTML.
In this workshop, we’ll learn what both of these languages do, and use them to create our own web pages
Workshop 14a focuses on the basics of Python and using it with the Sense HAT.
Learn how to boot your Raspberry Pi, then have a go with the Python programming language, before moving on to its use within Minecraft: Pi Edition, and a demonstration of using the popular Sense HAT addon board.
Workshop 12 teaches the very basics of using the Linux Command Line Interface. (CLI)
On a Linux computer the desktop only scratches the surface of the programs and functionality available. Linux users often access these additional features through a terminal window, using the Command Line Interface (CLI), a non-graphical user interface.
For many tasks, creative use of command-line commands is much faster than their GUI counterparts, especially in bulk tasks. We’ll only be able to take a look at the very basics today, but Linux geeks swear by the fact that each new trick they learn in the CLI allows them to save a little more time when using their computer.
This is an introductory workshop. Once you’re familiar with using your Pi on the desktop, you should be ready to attempt this workshop.
