The future

A session at Horizons

Sunday 6th May, 2012

3:15pm to 4:00pm (GMT)

Will the Raspberry Pi re-energise the home computing and programming scene? We'll be joined by Eben Upton of the Raspberry Pi team to discuss how this extraordinarily successful new product can bring development and experimentation back to the home.

Thanks to our friends at RS Components, two Raspberry Pis will be demonstrated at the event. Showing due deference to its illustrious ancestor, one will be running Manic Miner using the Fuse Spectrum Emulator kindly ported by Andy Taylor. The other will running something more in keeping with the speed and power of the machine. We hope to answer any technical questions you may have, and ensure that you have the right accessories to hand when your Raspberry Pi arrives.
