Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.
And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

Our Christmas opening hours will be as usual – we’ll finish on Christmas Eve, and return on Monday 4th January. In the meantime, anyone with a fob can use the building as usual; if you don’t, then email email@example.com to let us know that you want to come in, and we can let you know if there will be anyone around.

Things of Note
- Withnail & Lennon: Love your sexy toys pimoroni Phil Howard. Gonna monitor the bee hive with this. Any tips I need to know? #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/8E5JlVMg22

- Matthew Croughan: Have just set up an issues list for astralship.org via Gitlab. Idea kudos should be given to Adrian McEwen who pioneered this at DoES Liverpool. First issue on the list is to assemble some computers. #weeknotesgitlab.com/astralship/sno…
- Withnail & Lennon: That was a heck of a lot harder than I had expected it would be. On the plus side I now have a balena container for the pimoroni #EnviroPlus. I also know a LOT more about drivers and containers. Yay! 🕺🥳🎉🍾. #weeknotes Phil HowardCode here: github.com/DynamicDevices… pic.twitter.com/lnRSNlfOMK
- Withnail & Lennon: This is rather awesome. I have balena running the #EnviroPlus on a Raspberry Pi Zero. It’s connecting as a USB ethernet gadget to my laptop and sharing the connection out to the internet. So this now means I can chain this off my existing Raspberry Pi 4 #BeeCam #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/ay86NYk1qK
