Three years of Pi! #piday #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi

Happy Birthday Raspberry Pi! Via TheRaspberryPiGuy.

Three years ago something changed my life. It cost $35. It was the size of a credit card and didn’t look like much at all. What was this mystical thing? It was, of course, the little British computer that could: the Raspberry Pi.

Since the 29th of February 2012, a Pi-frenzy has whipped around the globe. Millions of people have found new passions for computer science, programming and electronics. The Cambridge-born, cheap PC has now sold over 5 million units: a far cry from the mere 10,000 the Foundation once dreamt of.

Now with the power of a quad-core processor, the Raspberry Pi continues to boom at an unprecedented rate; allowing education to flourish in every corner of the globe.

I thought that I would make a video to commemorate this historic landmark. I celebrated last year and I hope you’ll celebrate with me again this year! Check out 2014’s video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mdCy…

All of the video clips in this video are either my own or have been found on YouTube and other public video sharing sites – all of the content is in the public domain already and I am awfully sorry if I have missed out something that you would have liked to have seen.

I hope that you enjoy this video and here’s to all of the years to come! Last years video took around 10 hours to compile and edit – this one took over 30 (most of it was done in one sitting too!). I feel slightly mad.
