Liz Upton is the quiet force that keeps the Raspberry Pi Foundation chugging along. She runs the community, does the Foundation’s PR and corporate communication, is the person you talk to when you’re tweeting Raspberry Pi, stuffs envelopes with stickers, works with the press, takes many of the photos and videos, and also wields a soldering iron in emergencies. She shares a house, a surname and some feline friends with Eben Upton, the Foundation’s Executive Director. Liz is an award-winning freelance writer and a freelance editor. She worked in educational publishing before open source electronics and Eben wormed their ways into her heart. Check out the interview she did with Limor, Eben and John Biggs of Techcruch here.
October 15th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas”. We will also be referencing women from history that have made impacts in science and math, so keep an eye on these footers for more inspirational women!
Today everything in the Adafruit store is 10% off, just use the code ALD13 on checkout! Today’s the perfect day to spark the imagination of a future “Ada” with a gift from the Adafruit store!
