The Raspberry Pi wiki pages on this site are a community work - the Raspberry Pi Foundation is not responsible for content on these pages. Also, the Raspberry Pi isn't released yet - this page is a work in progress in preparation for the launch.
The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi or RasPi) is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer for teaching computer programming to children. It was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which is a UK registered charity (Registration Number 1129409). The foundation exists to promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing. We expect this computer to have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world.
- You can get the latest news from the Foundation Home Page, the Twitter Feed or in the forums.
- For Raspberry Pi frequently asked questions see the R-Pi FAQ or the Raspberry Pi Foundation's FAQ page.
- Products are RoHS and CE compliant. Please contact Raspberry Pi for details regarding WEEE in your country.
- Expected cost: ~16GBP or 25USD Model A, ~23GBP or 35USD for Model B. For information about availability and shipping see the Buying Guide.
- Confused about seeing different versions of the board? Visit the History of the Raspberry Pi Hardware for information about the past versions.
- Russell Davis (aka forum admin ukscone) has a series of blog articles recording his perspective of the Raspberry Pi story in several parts from the beginning.
- You will often hear mention of the BBC Micro Computer when people talk about the purpose of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. See this article on the history of the BBC Micro Computer.
