Coolest Projects International and Coolest Projects UK

As good as a flagship general eventuality in Dublin, Ireland, there are informal events in other countries. All these events are now open to makers and creators opposite a Raspberry Pi community, from Dojos, Code Clubs, and Raspberry Jams.

This year, for a initial time, we are bringing Coolest Projects to a UK for a illusory informal event! Coolest Projects UK will be hold during Here East in London on Saturday 28 April. We’re looking brazen to finding over 100 projects that immature people have designed and built, and saying them share their ideas and their passion for technology, make new friends, and learn from one another.
