The Raspberry Pi is one of the greatest talking points in computing in many a year. A cheap device allowing anyone with a television or screen to programme for no more than £50. It is the modern equivalent of the BBC Micro in the 1980's.

David Hodgkiss and Jonathan Westlake from Staffordshire University will show how a simple system can be created and programmed. This will be of particular interests to school teachers embarking on GCSE in Computing Science as well as anyone else wanting to get onto computing at a very low cost.
