10 Years of Raspberry Pi

It has been 10 years since the first blog post by Eben Upton announcing the Raspberry Pi. After 6 families of Raspberry Pi releases and over forty million boards sold, the Raspberry Pi has become a fan favorite. While the initial intent of the Raspberry Pi project was teaching introductory computer science in schools, especially in developing countries, it has found massive success in the hobbyist market.

The Raspberry Pi is an economical computer that runs Linux and provides GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins, allowing control of components for physical computing and the Internet of Things (IoT). Developers use the Raspberry Pi to learn to program, build hardware projects, do home automation, implement Kubernetes clusters and Edge computing, and even use them in industrial applications.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. Code Club and CoderDojo are part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Raspberry Jams are Raspberry Pi focused events for people of all ages to learn about Raspberry Pi and share ideas and projects.

kandi collection on 10 Years of Raspberry Pi, showcases the most popular libraries across hobbyist uses cases, home automation, IoT, OS, and utilities for Raspberry Pi. Hobbyist use cases span across health care, morse code, vision, servo motors, bitcoin, gaming, music, and many others demonstrating the versatility of the humble Raspberry Pi.

Happy Reuse!
