In honor of International Women’s Day earlier this week, RaspberryPi.org featured six women who are doing wonderful work in the world of Raspberry Pi.
Primary school teacher Cat Lamin is a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator who has worked energetically to support others to teach computing. Coding Evening, an initiative she set up in 2015 to bring together teachers, volunteers, IT professionals and hobbyists, has already spread from its roots in Twickenham to locations across the south and east of England. Cat talks about her experience with both Picademy and Coding Evening in episode #3 of The Pi Podcast; her interview starts around 16m35s.
