About PA's 2012/2013 Raspberry Pi competion
PA Consulting Group and the Raspberry Pi Foundation teamed up to challenge schoolchildren, students and computer programmers to invent something using a Raspberry Pi - a credit card sized computer - to make the world a better place.
All entrants need is a Raspberry Pi and the drive to use (or learn how to use) basic computer programming to make an incredible difference to people’s lives.
Here are four examples of the kinds of things that entrants might focus on:
helping others reduce their impact on the environment
reimagining how people receive healthcare in the community
making it easier for people to work with ‘big data’
protecting IT systems from malware and malicious hackers.
