when is birmingham/west midlands going to get a hack event like this? have
i missed them? i am more interested in programming then building computers
or playing with low level stuff with a raspberry pi.
just very rusty not done any in years.
need something to make computers interesting again and not just passive
watching tv on them or surfing the web skimming reading stuff.
