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.
