Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
When first announced, the $35 Raspberry Pi Linux computer struck the fervently fascinated do-it-yourself and "modding" communities with all the attention getting impact of a sweet and very well received pie-in-the-face. Parts-People.com's Paul B. Wordman is publishing an ongoing series of Raspberry Pi articles detailing a variety of developments concerning the credit-card sized computer created by the founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Eben Upton. Those articles point to the mission of the non-profit foundation which is "committed to supplying devices with the purpose of inspiring students to embark on technology careers by promoting the study of computer science and related topics".
The Raspberry Pi article series details various usage scenarios including a section called "BrewPi & the Working Man’s Bubbly" in which it is mentioned that a few small commercial breweries are already using Raspberry Pi units to drive automation. One article on "Random Slices & Intel’s Nuke NUC" enumerates uses such as "indications of interest from developing countries, museums, and hospitals for a variety of uses, including powering displays, and also for parents to use for monitoring disabled children and .... numerous, cost-effective, behind-the-scenes applications that benefit consumers or industrial processes, such as embedding the Raspberry Pi in various types of industrial equipment".
One article mentions the fact that the foundation now offers a Raspberry Pi turbo mode which enables both overclocking and overvolting dynamically, without voiding the warranty.
Another article in the series contains a section titled "Pi School" and it mentions: a United Kingdom "school in London is holding weekend sessions for 240 children to teach them the basics of coding. It seems that the foundation is at least beginning to fulfill its mission and purpose."
