Rob Bishop helped to create Raspberry Pi®, a game-changing credit card-sized computer, and now he wants to serve it up to kids around the world to help them learn to program.
At an evening event hosted by the Kauffman Foundation and Union Station on Friday, Aug. 23, the Raspberry Pi engineer and evangelist will present “Raspberry Pi—One Year On.” Bishop’s talk will cover the origin of the product and company, highlight recent developments, provide technical information, and address the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s educational aims. Time for an in-depth Q&A on Raspberry Pi educational and technical matters will follow.
Introduced in 2012 in the UK, the Raspberry Pi computer plugs into a TV and keyboard. The capable little PC, which sells for $35 or less, can be used much like a desktop PC for spreadsheets, word processing, games, and high-definition video.
