In a world where computers are increasingly powerful, the Raspberry Pi resembles little more than a small piece of exposed circuit board. Eben Upton, one of the creators of the Raspberry Pi, explains why he set out to design a computer so affordable that every child in Britain could have one, and discusses the staggering response to the Raspberry Pi.

Eben Upton is a Technical Director for Broadcom, and also a founder and trustee of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, responsible for the overall software and hardware architecture of the Raspberry Pi device. He studied Physics and Engineering at the University of Cambridge and went on to do the Cambridge Diploma in Computer Science, graduating in 2001. Upton completed his PhD in the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, and then completed an executive MBA at the Judge Business School while working in industry. Prior to working at Broadcom, Upton was Director of Studies in Computer Science at St John’s College, Cambridge. He has been a visiting Researcher at Intel Corporation, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Ideaworks3D and a Software Engineer at IBM .
