Welcome to our new website

You’ll notice that things round here don’t look like they used to. This website has had a comprehensive overhaul: we hope you like what you see. (That stuff from yesterday? April Fool’s. Sorry.) We are treating this new website as a Beta. There are a few things we won’t be able to move across until this... Continue reading

New website design is here!

As you’ll know if you’ve been following us here and on social media recently, we’ve been hard at work redeveloping the Raspberry Pi website. We’re excited to announce our new-look site today! You’ll find this new site has the following features: Optimised for use with the Raspberry Pi Handsome retro look and feel Elegant colour... Continue reading

Welcome to the newest member of the Raspberry Pi family!

If you’ve emailed our info@ address in the last year, spoken to us about trademarks or talked to us on Facebook or G+, you’ll have bumped into the indefatigable Lorna. She went on maternity leave a couple of weeks ago, and today she had a little boy. Welcome to the Pi family, Ronan Peter: we’re... Continue reading

Forums down this weekend for maintenance

We’ve had an issue this afternoon with some corruption in the forums database, which means that a lot of you can’t log in, and can’t see your old posts. We’re going to take the forums down completely later this evening, while we try to fix the problem. It’s possible that when they come back up... Continue reading

Happy New Year!

We’re taking the day off today, but if you’re thirsty for more about Raspberry Pi, we recommend a stroll through our 2013 archives. There’s a lot to get your teeth into there. Thanks for supporting us through 2013. We’ve got lots of exciting stuff in store for 2014, so keep checking back for more!... Continue reading

Welcome Ben!

We’re welcoming a new member to the team at Pi Towers today. Some of you already know Ben Nuttall from his work on the Pi Weekly email newsletter (if you haven’t signed up already, you should), his hosting of the Manchester Jams, and his STEM activities. I first crossed paths with Ben when we met the incredible Amy... Continue reading

TWO MILLION!

It took us almost exactly a year to sell the first million Raspberry Pis. Going on that basis, we calculated that we might, if we were lucky, reach the second million around January 2014, or slightly afterwards – we were confident we’d get there by the end of February 2014. So it was a bit... Continue reading

Afghanistan project: double your money update

I’ve spoken to the board of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and I’m very pleased to be able to tell you that donations to the project we posted about yesterday, to bring computing labs to girls in Afghanistan, will be matched up to $10,000 by the Foundation. So there’s an extra incentive to donate – we’ll... Continue reading

Introducing our Artist in Residence, Rachel Rayns!

Liz: We talk a lot here about making, designing, and how computing is just as much a creative discipline as it is a technical one. There’s a weird dividing line in many people’s heads between creativity and technology. I hope that the projects we show you on this website demonstrate that there shouldn’t be. That...
