If you visited us at the Bett Show in January, or came to Picademy in October or February half term, then you will recognise James Robinson as one of our education team volunteers. He is a well-established member of the Computing At School community, as both a CAS Master Teacher and CAS Hub Leader for Cambridge. He... Continue reading
Yesterday we received some figures which confirmed something we’ve suspected for a few weeks now: we’ve sold over five million Raspberry Pis. The Pi has gone from absolutely nothing just under three years ago, to becoming the fastest-selling British computer. (We still have Sir Alan Sugar to beat on total sales numbers – if you include...

At the start of September, a film crew from CNBC came to visit Cambridge. They spent some time with us at Pi Towers, and came to the Cambridge Jam the next day to talk to some of the kids there who use the Raspberry Pi. They produced two short videos, both full of footage from... Continue reading
Meet your new favourite piece of hardware.

And he made an announcement which has had us jumping around the... Continue reading
I’m just off the plane, and back in Blighty. (It is about 20° C colder than it was in California, and I am not happy.) This was waiting in my inbox when I opened my email, and I suspect you’ll want to share it. The good folks from RS will be answering your questions in the... Continue reading
As you may have seen on our forums and elsewhere on the web, element14 customers have been getting delivery date emails today. Jenny has sent us this, to let you know what’s going on if your email hasn’t dropped into your inbox yet: Delivery update from element14 We’re excited to report that our next shipment...

Fortunately for us all, I did find some coffee on arrival in America (not to mention a macrobiotic breakfast involving a surprising amount of raw cabbage – you’ve got to love California). A whole day away from the network means I’ve got a great big heap of email, so I’ll be a bit quiet on... Continue reading
