Sonic Pi orchestra puts on live coding performance #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
It’s always great to see schools and kids using Raspberry Pi to learn how to code. Raspberrypi.org posted this video from Benton Park School of a live coding performance. Check out more info here!
We’re always really excited to see the resources and tools we make being used by kids in school. This video is from Benton Park School in Leeds, where a Sonic Pi orchestra put on a live coding performance recently. You can see setup, practice and some of the performance itself here.
I first watched this with Sam Aaron, who created Sonic Pi, looking over my shoulder, and we were both giggling with glee.
