No cake for us today …
Myself and Tim Wilson had our first planning meeting for the Raspberry Pi Birthday party back in late December 2017 and after much planning we had brilliant day planned for today. We had an amazing venue, great speakers, awesome workshop facilitators and loads of goodie bags to hand out to people.
We knew the weather was going to be interesting but by the middle of Thursday it looked as if we were going to escape the snow here in Birmingham. And then it came, heavy snow which grid-locked Birmingham for rush hour on Thursday night. Most of the schools in the city were closed on Friday and it continued to snow from Friday lunchtime over night.
After many tweets, emails and phone calls on Friday morning we made the decision to postpone the Birthday Jam.
The good news is that we will be back later in the spring with Birthday Jam 2.0 which we will endeavour to make bigger and better than what we had planned.
