Buy your child a career for £25

Published 27 September 2012 under news

Any child's career prospects could be transformed for as little as £25, says Afterthought Software director Andy Duller.

That is the price of a Raspberry Pi, the revolutionary credit-card sized computer which has taken the personal computer world by storm.

The UK-made Raspberry Pi is on course to reach a million sales this year following its launch last April. The tiny PC has all the potential of a normal sized computer or laptop.

The Raspberry Pi’s use of Linux as the operating system introduces the exciting world of Open Source Software to a new audience. This encourages a collaborative form of software development which has major benefits for all concerned.

Andy Duller says the Raspberry Pi gives every child in the UK the chance of having their own computer, with its massive programming potential.

Andy adds: "In the software industry there is a serious shortage of skilled programmers. The Pi gives kids a cheap opportunity to mess around with a PC and to pick up some programming knowledge, which could be invaluable when they come to look for work. It’s never too early to try your hand at programming.

"We urge every parent to invest £25 in the potential of a brilliant and highly-rewarding career for their children."
