As we are featuring the Raspberry Pi at the user group meet up I have been reaching out to some other tech communities and on Saturday I visited the Blackpool Linux user group. They meet each Saturday 10 till 12 and they are a great bunch of guys that made me feel very welcome. With Les and Alan we looked at getting the Raspberry Pi running with OpenELEC and Les had nice case for this Pi.
At the other side of the room there were lessons in Python and installing Debian on an old Thin Client, I also met up with Alan O’Donohoe who is organising Raspberry Pi events. Thanks to the guys for the welcome and they will be at our event in September showing off Linux distros, hopefully I should be able to make a few more meetings before then.
You can find out more about the user group at blackpoollug.blogspot.co.uk and I will have a short interview with Les on this weeks podcast.
