Issue #98 — Build

Friday 1 May 2015

Hi everyone

This week the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced they have a new CEO: Philip Colligan – read about Philip on the blog and await further introduction once he gets started this summer. Picademy #8 took place at the start of this week at Pi Towers.

Microsoft launched a developer preview of Windows IoT Core at their Build conference this week, and demonstrated a Pi robot with accompanied virtual reality hologram.

Picademy is going to Devon – teachers in the South West can apply now for a place on the Foundation’s free CPD course in June.
