Raspberry LMP(i)

[flickr]5841339401[/flickr] The latest update from Raspberry Pi is that they will be receiving manufatured devices from the Chinese manufacturer on 20th February. This is great news for the everyone interested in these groundbreaking devices. In my School of Computer Science we are looking forward to using them in many ways with undergraduate students, and also with local schools. Their novelty aside, the sheer affordability of the devices and their relevance to the ongoing computer science education debate is a compelling story which is unfolding. I hope we see a new generation of young computer enthusiasts start to emerge and follow in the footsteps of those who went before them in the 1970’s and 80’s. Their achievements paved the way for the modern day┬ácomputer games industry, the social media revolution and pervasive mobile device proliferation we see today.
