It’s the Raspberry Pi’s third birthday today (or as near as we can get: we launched on February 29 in a leap year). To celebrate we’re having a huge party/conference/scrum over the weekend in Cambridge – we’ve sold 1,300 tickets and I’m currently hiding in the press room to get this post written. I’m on a really overloaded WiFi network, so I’m having trouble uploading pictures at the minute: we’ll have some for you next week. [Edited: here’s just one from this morning – we’ll have lots more to share soon!]
Three years ago, we made 2,000 little computers, and I remember looking at the pallet, and thinking: “Cripes. Can’t believe we’ve made so many computers. That’s amazing.”
We’ve sold half a million of the things just this month. Thanks to everyone who’s joined us on this extraordinarily weird journey – you’re all brilliant.
WATCH FOUR YEARS OF PI HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnLTrJ6YQ-o&feature=youtu.be Three years ago something changed my life. It cost $35. It was the size of a credit card and didn’t look like much at all. What was this mystical thing? It was, of course, the little British computer that could: the Raspberry Pi.
