Two years after the first guest performance of Pi and More on the Lower Rhine, we return there on April 6th. We are looking forward to it - with a large makerspace and many committed people on site, Krefeld provides an excellent location for Pi and More. Due to a special architectural feature on site, we will have an extraordinary competition for you this year - read more below!
As usual, the programme will be announced a few weeks ahead of the event, just like the exact times. Registration now open!
Until then, we are looking for contributions: Lectures, project exhibitions and workshops can be submitted until March 10th, 2019. Do you have an exciting project that you would like to present? Click here to submit!
As mentioned above, a special highlight awaits all those who enjoy creative tinkering: One of the few freely accessible paternoster lifts in Germany is located in Krefeld. Like all paternoster lifts, it was built long before the era of home automation and the Internet of Things - but that doesn't mean it can't be retrofitted, at least temporarily! As part of our Pi and More Maker Challenge #1 on April 6th, we will choose the most creative proposal for the electronic improvement of the "Proletenbagger" - more details here.
Don't waste your time and get started!
We would like to thank all visitors, contributors and helpers of Pi and More 11!
Pi and More 11½ will probably take place on 6 April 2019 at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Krefeld, where we already hosted Pi and More 9½. This date is currently still provisional.
The talks at Pi and More 11 are live streamed here. See here for the schedule.
On Saturday, November 3, a diverse program around the Raspberry Pi and other small computers will be presented at the University of Trier. As always, various talks and workshops will be held for beginners and experts. Hobbyists, makers, professional users, students, teachers, and other Pi enthusiasts will be in their element.
In addition to the Raspberry Pi, there are two other Minicomputer in focus this time: The Calliope mini, which some of you may know already, and the Kniwwelino, which has been developed in neighbouring Luxembourg. Both are especially targeted towards students and offer a particularly lightweight introduction to microcontroller programming. Also the topic Smart Home is in focus again: Several talks will show how to operate garage doors, how to control room temperatures or how to intelligently manage meeting rooms.
As usual, we ask that you register as a visitor in advance.
piandmore.de now comes in a new design and with new functions!
The conference system (call for contributions, visitor registration, helper system) and information about past and future events are now combined in one website.
The individual talks will be edited in the next 1-2 weeks and will then be available as separate videos on YouTube!
350 visitors have registered for Pi and More 10½ already, so unfortunately there are no more tickets available. We would like to give more visitors the chance to participate in Pi and More, but we are bound by safety requirements that limit the size of the event. If you haven't got a ticket yet, we recommend our newsletter (so you'll be able to register earlier the next time, see right) and the live stream of the talks that we will be offering here on Saturday.
We are pleased to announce the program for Pi and More 10½ today! For our premiere in Swabia we didn't skimp on the program: numerous workshops, lectures and a large project exhibition are waiting for you. As a special treat, there are guided tours of the Computer Museum Stuttgart, which is conveniently located in the same building.
As usual, we ask all visitors to register in advance (free of charge)!
The talks from Pi and More 10 are available online in our Youtube channel.
For the next Pi and More on June 24 at the University of Trier, we have assembled a large and interesting program for you: Pi and More 10 provides you a whole day program with 17 talks, 2 workshops, and 13 project booths about the Pi and other small computers. You can find the whole agenda here.
As usual, entrance is free, but we would like you to register beforehand if you plan to attend.
This time, we will have lightning talks again! After lunch, you can present your project, event, or topic in 3 minutes. You can submit your short talk right at the venue.
See you on June 24!
All talks of Pi and More 9½ (in the Audimax and BE14 rooms) are available in our YouTube channel.
Pi and More 9½ will take place on January 14 at the Hochschule Niederrhein in Krefeld. Register now to save your visitor ticket (for free, of course)!
Do you have a topic you want to present at Pi and More? You can give a talk, exhibit a project, or teach others in a hands-on workshop. You can still submit your contribution until December 17 in our conference system.
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!
