Students based in the UK looking to learn more about computer programming, maybe interested in an annual Raspberry Pi Challenge which is held by the University of York.
The Raspberry Pi Challenge has been created to provide an introduction for future students to the world of programming, regardless of any previous experience. Enabling those without any programming experience to get their hands on the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC and start creating projects using code.
Check out the video below of this years Raspberry Pi Challenge 2016 held at the University of York to learn more about the event and how you can partake in next year’s.
They aim to create a wide community of support for all in much the same way as the Raspberry Pi Foundation does, working to introduce their students to each other and helping to build relationships before the start of the academic year.
Gordon Hollingworth, our Director of Software Engineering, visited the department as one of the judges of this year’s competition… sorry, he’s just advised me that he was Head Judge, and he’s now saying something about bicycles… and provided his wealth of knowledge and experience.
