The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost credit card-sized computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.  It was created specifically with the intention of aiding the teaching of basic computer science in schools.  However, not only can you use it for education, a vibrant community of “MAKER”s has sprung up using the Raspberry Pi to do some really fun stuff, everything from growing tomatoes to brewing beer.
Scott will go over
