MakerMonday is a regular Monday workshop that aims to foster innovation with digital technology. The sessions will be held in the evening of the final Monday of each month at Birmingham Open Media (except when the final Monday is a bank holiday, in which case it’s the penultimate Monday)
The next event will be on the theme of Open Innovation. Our guest expert will be Pablo Ripollés from Media Lab Prado. They are a long standing FabLab and originators of the Interactivos? event that has brought us many superb creative technology projects. Pablo will show some inspirational work and then lead a workshop session. The workshop will look at how you can use Python (the popular programming language, not the snake) in creative programming.
In the meantime, please look at our project updates on Tumblr (http://makermondaybrum.tumblr.com/) as we’ve added a few more interesting ones.
