Upcoming talk: Raspberry Pi: past, present and future with Eben Upton #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi
Raspberry Pi was launched in 2012, with the goal of boosting young people’s engagement with Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. In the decade-and-a-bit since, there has been an explosion of interest, in education, in the hobbyist space, and lately in industrial and commercial applications.
Raspberry Pi has shipped over fifty million Raspberry Pi computers, designed in Cambridge and manufactured in South Wales, and recently launched their first silicon chips.
In an upcoming Cambridge Festival talk, Eben Upton shares some of the highlights from the last eleven years; discusses the current state of the Raspberry Pi project, including their ongoing recovery from the global semiconductor crisis; and speculates on what may be in store for Raspberry Pi and for the broader computing space.
Free registration is required for the physical event held in Lecture Theatre A, University of Cambridge Admissions Office, New Museums site, Bene’t Street, Cambridge, United Kingdom on March 28th from 6 to 7pm.

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.
