Exploring the Raspberry Jam with Dr. Vincent Smith

In this Episode of the Kanawha Valley Hustlers I’m at the University of Charleston chatting with Dr. Vincent Smith about the upcoming 6th Annual Raspberry Jam WV. This event, slated for March 16th, promises to be a showcase of all things tech. But what exactly is the Raspberry Jam, you may wonder?

Well, let me break it down for you. Despite its fruity name, the Raspberry Jam isn’t about spreading preserves on toast. Instead, it’s a celebration of innovation and technology, with a special focus on Raspberry Pi computing devices. Now, you might be wondering, what’s so special about these tiny gadgets?

Imagine a computer that fits in your pocket, does a bunch of things, and doesn’t cost much. That’s the Raspberry Pi. Whether you’re into retro gaming or tinkering with sensors in a lab, there’s something for everyone at the Raspberry Jam.

But what sets the Raspberry Pi apart from your average smartphone or laptop? For starters, its affordability and versatility make it a favorite among tech enthusiasts. Plus, you have the freedom to customize and code to your heart’s content, unleashing your creativity in ways you never thought possible.

Now, you might be thinking, “I’m no tech whiz. Can I still enjoy the Raspberry Jam?” Absolutely! This event is open to everyone, from high school students to retirees looking to learn something new. Forget the intimidation factor of coding. We’re here to make it accessible and fun for all ages.

At the Raspberry Jam, you’ll delve into the world of embedded systems and the Internet of Things. Ever dreamed of creating your own smart devices, like a pet food dish that sends you alerts or an automated litter box? Well, consider this your crash course in making those dreams a reality.

So mark your calendars for March 16th and join us at the Raspberry Jam. Whether you’re a seasoned techie or a curious novice, there’s plenty to see, do, and learn.
