Raspberry Pi co-founders Liz and Eben honoured by The National Museum of Computing
The National Museum of Computing has a mission statement To bring to life the history and ongoing development of computing for inspiration, research, learning and enjoyment for the benefit of general and specialist publics of all ages.
Last month, Raspberry Pi co-founders Liz and Eben Upton took a trip to The National Museum of Computing (TNMOC) in Bletchley (home of the codebreakers) because TNMOC thinks they’re both really rather good.
Liz and Eben received Honorary Fellowships acknowledging “outstanding individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to the fields of computing and technology.”
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.
