Ticky-tacky for 3D (Dojo Demo Day)

This just some of the stuff we hope to use during our Dojo Demo Day.

The BBC micro:bit has become very popular as a transition kit from Scratch to physical computing. Its plug and play functionality and online coding facility has made it a favourite with the 8 – 10 year olds.

The Raspberry Pi is still the 11 -13 year old cool coders preference.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

My Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ arrived today. The packaging has become more economical since its launch back in 2012. The original arrived foam packed in a sturdy cardboard box along with an instruction booklet and above all in an anti-static bag.

No such luck with the latest arrival. It arrived floating around in a light card mini snack box with no anti-static bag.

 

Ghost Post

I inadvertently re-launched a June 2nd 2017 post yesterday by changing the images from png to jpeg.  Sorry for the Ghost Post. I was informed last Friday that the png images were not showing in some browsers so I converted the non-obliging images to jpeg.

WordCamp Dublin 2017

Great weekend in DCU at WordCamp Dublin 2017 with bloggers, entertainers, entrepreneurs, teachers, etc, etc. Two days of networking, workshops and talks. Expert hosted Help Desk. Free exchange of ideas, methods and tech tips. It was great to meet everybody in the flesh.
