The story of Raspberry Pi – and a masterclass with Eben

The Centre for Computing History, with help from the Heritage Lottery fund, conducted a video interview about the story of Raspberry Pi with our very own Eben Upton (founder, Raspberry Pi Trading CEO, fond of Jaffa Cakes) a few months ago. It’s just been made live – if you want to dive deep into the story of Raspberry Pi, this one’s for you.

Eben Upton – The Story of Raspberry Pi

Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, talks about the Raspberry Pi, how it came to be and the ups and downs of bringing his £25 computer to market. Part of the Centre for Computing History Viva Computer project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. www.ComputingHistory.org.uk

Eben’s giving a sort of history/computing lesson at the Centre for Computing History here in Cambridge on July 2: he’ll be teaching people how to code on a BBC Micro (the same machine he taught himself to program on back in the 1980s). This promises to be good; I’ve caught him writing snippets of game in BBC BASIC in the evenings after work for the event. People of any age over 11 are invited to sign up: get your booking in fast, because this one’s likely to sell out quickly!
