The story of Raspberry Pi – and a masterclass with Eben

via Raspberry Pi

The Centre for Computing History, with help from the Heritage Lottery fund, conducted a video interview about the story of Raspberry Pi with our very own Eben Upton (founder, Raspberry Pi Trading CEO, fond of Jaffa Cakes) a few months ago. It’s just been made live – if you want to dive deep into the story of Raspberry Pi, this one’s for you.

Eben Upton – The Story of Raspberry Pi

Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, talks about the Raspberry Pi, how it came to be and the ups and downs of bringing his £25 computer to market. Part of the Centre for Computing History Viva Computer project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. www.ComputingHistory.org.uk

Eben’s giving a sort of history/computing lesson at the Centre for Computing History here in Cambridge on July 2: he’ll be teaching people how to code on a BBC Micro (the same machine he taught himself to program on back in the 1980s). This promises to be good; I’ve caught him writing snippets of game in BBC BASIC in the evenings after work for the event. People of any age over 11 are invited to sign up: get your booking in fast, because this one’s likely to sell out quickly!

The Raspberry Pi Guy interviews Eben

via Raspberry Pi

A few weeks ago Matt Timmons-Brown, The Raspberry Pi Guy, visited Pi Towers to interview Raspberry Pi Trading CEO Eben Upton. Over the course of an hour and a half, Matt drew Eben’s detailed answers on some of the topics that hundreds of you put forward in response to a call for questions.

When might we see an updated Model A and Compute Module? What’s next for the Raspberry Pi camera module and Pi NoIR? How will a Raspberry Pi look, ten years from now? Are there any plans to update Minecraft: Pi Edition for the Pi 2’s hardware?

Watch Matt’s interview for the answers to these and many more. You’ll certainly learn things you won’t have seen elsewhere.

“This is not a product announcement! This is speculation about industry trends! Make sure that that bit goes in the video.”
