Today we received, what we at Tarvinonline, consider to be one of our more unusual requests. The local resident, Bryan Evans, wrote:
"I have recently purchased a Raspberry Pi 2 micro computer and am now having to understand its operation. Do we have any Raspberry Pi users in Tarvin who I may turn to for help if necessary."
This is one occasion when the younger members of our community might be more able to respond than the older generations. Anyway for future reference, and in case it ever comes up in the Village Quiz, a Raspberry Pi 2 is a tiny and affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun and practical projects.
If this has wetted your appetite to know more, the Raspberry Pi is apparently a series of credit card-sized single-board computers developed in Wales by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries. The original Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2 are manufactured in several board configurations through licensed manufacturing agreements with Newark element14 (Premier Farnell), RS Components and Egoman. The hardware is the same across all manufacturers. So there you are!
If you are able to offer assistance, you can contact Bryan by e-mail at email@example.com or by phoning 01829 740781.
