January 16th – Geekup Blackpool head to Preston Geekup
It was a cold night in Preston, but the welcome was warm.
There were around 20 people there, and the chat was very geeky. Legend of Zelda maps, ARM based Linux devices and the upcoming Hack to the Future event. (Which by the way you need to read about, it’s epic!) A full day of workshops and talks for kids. It’s basically a barcamp for kids! I can’t wait to go and Blackpool LUG will be there also. I’ll be interviewing Alan on the Fullcircle podcast in the near future
I also spoke to Martin Ayrton and Tim Hastings about the cubox, an ARM based computer that can run Linux and Android, and output 1080p video!
What with this and the raspberrypi I may be skint!
I had a great night, and will definitely be going again.
