25 million + Raspberry Pi computers sold @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi
A lot happened in 2019 already! The Raspberry Pi folks have some interesting stats, marketshare / units and more! Congrats!
Through their clubs and competitions, they are engaging 250,000 young people every week in learning how to create with digital technologies. AND sold the 25 millionth Raspberry Pi at the end of February 2019 and opened a store!
We checked with Philip Colligan, Chief Executive, Raspberry Pi Foundation to make sure this was OK to post 🙂
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
