On Saturday March 3 and Sunday March 4, Malta will be joining the global maker movement in celebration of the 6th birthday of the iconic Raspberry Pi with Malta’s first ever Raspberry Pi Jam: MaltaPi!
Easypeasycoding in collaboration with the Vintage Computer Club Malta are hosting the exciting set of workshops over the course of two days suitable for children and adults of all ages and knowledge levels. Participants can make, hack, code, tinker and play with all things Raspberry Pi.
Did we mention the event is free of charge?
Guest speakers will present during the two day Raspberry Pi Jam including a presentation on a Raspberry Pi powered facial recognition information system developed in Malta and used at Science in the City last year.

What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a tiny and extremely affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun yet practical projects like programming an alarm clock or using it as a way to stream media to other devices. Anyone who has ever used a Raspberry Pi knows that the possibilities are endless.
In technical terms, the Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the UK to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools. With over 15 million units sold, they are the third best-selling general purpose computer.
Any basic user, through video tutorials or simple text based howtos can create many devices that would otherwise cost a lot more to buy pre-made from your own AI powered assistant, networked printers, DIY arcade machines or even a Raspberry Pi powered laptop!
From novices to more advanced makers, don’t miss the first ever Raspberry Pi Jam this weekend. Find out more about this weekend’s jam by visiting their Facebook event.
