On January 14, the first Raspberry Jam in North Rhine-Westphalia will open its doors at the Hochschule Niederrhein in Krefeld (about 30 km from the Netherlands)!

As usual, we will publish the schedule for the day including exact times a few weeks before the event. Until then, we are looking for your contributions - be it workshops, talks, or projects for our exhibition! 

Btw: From now on, our smaller winter events will carry the "½" in their names.

A short presentation on the concept and history of Pi and More will be given at the workshop "Informatik - Begeisterung" (Informatics - Excitement) which is co-located with the conference INFORMATIK 2016. (Short version in German.) INFORMATIK 2016 is the 46th annual conference of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (German Informatics Society). The conference takes place from September 26-30 in Klagenfurt, Austria.

At the same time, we are continueing the preparations for the next two Pi and More events, with more information to follow soon, stay tuned!

Only a little more than two weeks until Pi and More 9 opens its doors in Trier. The largest Pi and More agenda ever awaits you with over 30 hours of talks and workshops plus a big project exhibition. There is something for everyone!

This time, we also have some talks in English. Additionally, especially in the project exhibition, most contributors will be happy to speak to you in English!

Bring your project to Pi and More! Until May 31, you can submit a talk, workshop or a project for the exhibition.

Who would have thought that one year ago? Microsoft joins us at Pi and More 7. After their announcement of Windows 10 for the Pi, we ask: Can that go well? Marcel Tilly, Senior Programm Manager IoT at Microsoft, will give us the answer in our keynote.

This is not all: Microsoft conducts a free TechCamp on the Internet of Things on the day before Pi and More 7 (June 19).

For every contributor at Pi and More 7, Allnet provides a free Brick'R'Knowledge or Arduino starter kit. OKW Gehäusesysteme adds a high-quality Raspberry Pi case!

Besides that, grants for travel expenses are available under specific conditions.

You can submit your own project, talk, or workshop until end of May.

What is Pi and More?

At Pi and More, beginners and experts meet for talks, workshops, and projects focussing on the Raspberry Pi, embedded systems and microcontrollers. Initiated at the University of Trier, every second event is at some other university in the region - be it in Trier, Luxemburg or in Saarbrücken.
