The Raspberry Pi foundation exists to develop, manufacture and distribute an ultra-low-cost and tiny footprint computer (target is $25), for use in teaching computer programming to children. It is expected that this computer will have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world. Without open source software this kind of innovation would simply not be possible. In this session Eben Upton will describe the role open source has in the creation of this computer and the subsequent ecosystem that will build applications for it. Most importantly he will describe how you can benefit from and contribute to the work of the foundation.
