So who better to chat with this week than Eben Upton, cofounder and executive director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation? Eben and his team are the magicians behind this incredible device, a project that started as a way to spark kids’ interest in computer science. Launched in early 2012, the demand for Pi was so great that it quickly sold out—and a year later, nearly a million units have been sold. We caught up with Eben to find out his favorite apps, best life hacks, and can’t-live-without gadgets.
