Issue #53 — Create

Friday 20 June 2014

Hi everyone

This week at the Foundation began with two days of Picademy – the free personal development training course for enthusiastic teachers in the UK, led by Carrie Anne with the rest of the education team.

As well as running a Picamera workshop and speaking about GitHub at Picademy, Ben has been working on a a guide for educators and anyone who wants to create resources for the Raspberry Pi website.

Ryan has been busy shipping the robot kits people ordered through his Indiegogo campaign.

This week last year was our first issue! We celebrated the end-of-year last week but this is more like a birthday … so happy birthday us!
