Presenting the Raspberry Pi to others as a programming platform
The Raspberry Pi is the cheapest and most popular single-board computer available in 2016. It is the size of a credit card and is powered by a 5 volt phone charger.
The goal of the Raspberry Pi Foundation is to advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects. We should all become familiar with the Raspberry Pi and show others how to use it, too.
I will introduce you to some of the projects I have done and start you on your way to building your own creative projects. The Python programming language is the perfect way to unleash the power of the device, so I will demonstrate some different introductory Python projects suitable for children and adults.
Buy Raspberry Pis, teach others to use them, and give them a computer that they can take home. With some luck and inspiration, they can unplug their game console and plug in a programming environment.
