Issue #72 — Depth

Friday 31 October 2014


This week the Foundation office held Picademy #5, followed by the pilot for the Raspberry Pi Digital Creatives Bronze award – an extra curricular project to engage young people in digital creativity led by Rachel where Amy and Dan Mather have been making halloween themed hacks, and Liz and Eben went to Washington, D.C. for Broadcom MASTERS.

We’ve seen plenty of Halloween Pi hacks this week, and expect more over the weekend.

Congratulations to Andrew Mulholland for winning the Digital Hero award for his community work and contributions to Raspberry Pi’s use in education.
