Raspberry Pi is unlike other digital device companies in that Raspberry Pi seems as if it’s about the computer, not the profit. Following on from the success of previous devices, Raspberry Pi is releasing an even less expensive device, the Pi Zero. The price of the Pi Zero is $5US and aims to give people their first taste of programming.
Knowing how to use the software on a computer is different to know how to use a computer. The computer and how to program it isn’t something unknowable or incomprehensible. Programming literacy is gaining importance in education and the workplace. Knowing a little about programming, about how computer hardware works can help individuals to do more with their machines that use them as an expensive word processor or communications device.
