With a million Raspberry Pi computers sold in the first year, will this seed a new generation of top young British computer coders and programmers?
The credit card-sized computer continues to surprise and delight as enthusiasts come up with increasingly innovative uses for the device.

E&T magazine had a special issue dedicated to the diminutive computer in March 2013. Check it out online, as we look at uses for the Raspberry Pi in education and also for more everyday “grown up” applications and novel solutions.
Earlier in the year, we also reported on the Tweeting chicken that deters dieters from sneaking snacks, a sentinel for the larder powered by a Raspberry Pi. Cheep and cheerful!
