From DIY Kits to Digital Dreams with Mike Stockman

This is Joe Justice, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to the latest episode of the Kanawha Valley Hustlers podcast. Today, I’m chatting with my good friend Mike Stockman owner of BizSolutions.Tech about something really exciting – the upcoming 6th Annual Raspberry Jam happening this Saturday, March 16th.

So, what exactly is the Raspberry Jam? Well, according to Mike, it’s a fantastic event where people come together to explore the world of Raspberry Pi – those nifty little computers that can do just about anything. From home automation to gaming and even network application servers, the possibilities are endless.

But what sets this event apart is its hands-on approach. Forget about computers behind glass or YouTube tutorials – at the Raspberry Jam, you’ll get to touch and interact with these devices firsthand. Last year, they even had Raspberry Pi set up as gaming machines.

Now, you might be wondering, why should you care about Raspberry Pi? These small computers are revolutionary. Not only are they affordable, but they’re also incredibly versatile. From weather stations to gaming systems to voice recognition tools, the sky’s the limit.

And here’s the best part – this event isn’t just for adults. It’s for kids too! We’re talking elementary school kids who can learn about video games and 3D printing. Imagine the possibilities when these young minds grow up – it’s truly mind-blowing.

Now, Mike shared with me his company’s passion for technology education in West Virginia. By sponsoring events like the Raspberry Jam, they’re helping to ignite a passion for technology in the next generation. And trust me, that’s something worth celebrating.

As we reminisced about the early days of computing, Mike and I couldn’t help but marvel at how far we’ve come. From DIY computer kits to 3D printing, the possibilities are endless. And who knows? Maybe the next Steve Jobs is among us, just waiting for the opportunity to shine.

So mark your calendars, folks! This Saturday, March 16th, from 11 AM to 3 PM, join us at UC for the 6th Annual Raspberry Jam. Whether you’re a seasoned tech enthusiast or just curious about what Raspberry Pi can do, this event is for you.
