Re: Pygame

<t>I would hope whichever version you choose as the recommended/standard version of Python you stick with it. I would prefer to see 3.X being picked as it is the as it is the "future" of the language (be it uptake is a little slow).<br/> <br/> I wouldn't like to see a lot of resources being made foc...

Re: Petition to get Programming back into schools

<t>Hi guys, I wasn't sure if this belonged in off-topic, if it does I apologize. It seemed just relevant enough to put in here.<br/> <br/> While signing the Alan Turing Petition http://epetitions.direct.gov.u.....ions/23526 I briefly considered making one for bringing programming back into schools. ...

Re: Google Summer of Code 2012

<t>I don\'t know much about Google\'s summer of code but I can\'t see any great push for it happening for 2012. Since it is relativity soon (the boards are not even available yet and I assume the first year could be fairly hectic for the foundation) and it doesn\'t directly meet the aims of the foun...

Re: What happens after the first 10,000?

So after the first batch, do you have any eta on the second batch - assuming the first batch sells out quickly.
And once the first batch is gone, will \"pre-orders\" be available to guarantee a pi in the next batch?

Re: A slightly different approach

I had come across that topic but I felt that it was perhaps a little too advanced for anything involving design and technology in schools. In my opinion such a setup would be more so suitable for university students rather than gcse / a level pupils.

Re: A slightly different approach

<t>I understand that the raspberry pi has the aim of helping reintroduce computer science into school, but has much thought been put into introducing it into design and technology classes?<br/> My systems and control projects at A level relied heavily on a fairly low cost pic chip along with pic log...
