The Raspberry Pi is a tiny $25 computer intended for children that sold out to adults wanting to play with it. It really is quite the amazing work of art as far as computers are concerned. It runs on Linux and has a minimalistic design consisting of an HDMI out, USB port, SD card port and an ethernet port.

Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, will be hosting a webinar on April 4 for those who want to learn how to program for the computer. The webinar will be hosted in collaboration with Element 14 on April 2 at 2 p.m. GMT. If you want to attend, you will have to sign up. For those who can’t make it, the video will be uploaded later.

Upton will be walking new and veteran users alike on how to download and install the operating system on an SD card, run the boot up script and use the script editor to create applications using Python. It should be an interesting talk for those who want to learn how to use one of the world’s smallest (and cheapest) computers.

While you’re waiting, check out a few of the cool things Raspberry Pi has already proven it can do:

    I have one of these on order. I’m hoping its going to bring the joy of home computing back to the younger generation. I was one of the lucky ones who owned a ZX81 back in 1981 – I learned a lot from that machine. Raspberry Pi Rules!

    Fantastic hype, now all we need is to actually be able to get our hands on one before anything else!
    Spoke to a friend that is a programmer asked him to write a raspberry pi emulator program for the pc so we can all get used to it to be ready when we get real one ( 2015?…) he said could be done in java. So get out there you programmers the race is on first person to make emulator for PC and maybe even mac… will have their name remembered and program pirated all around the world! Forget getting rich those few lines of code will make you famous if you embed your name in them. What are you waiting for!
