Two Years of Pi! @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
YouTube user Matt A.K.A. “The Raspberry Pi Guy” has made this video celebrating all things pi for it’s upcoming 2 year anniversary.
On the 29th of February 2012 a credit card sized computer was released to the public… Not only did it kickstart my interests in programming, electronics and all things geeky but it also kindled the same passion in millions of others: affecting people of all different ages and abilities around the globe. What was this miraculous device?
The Raspberry Pi.
An affordable computer that anyone can buy and learn computing with. The Pi enables you to do projects that you could only dream about and for only £25 it is remoulding education.
The Raspberry Pi will turn two years old in the upcoming months – that is two whole years of inspiration, projects and learning. I thought that I would make a video to commemorate this historic landmark, as well as to show everyone, new to this or not, the incredible diversity of the Raspberry Pi! Enjoy 🙂

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
