Andy used a Raspberry Pi computer to progress his career a few years back and now wants to give others the same insight in to electronics and computer code with Make It Technology. Mixing his electrical engineering background and knowledge of the Raspberry Pi, the Make-it.Technology offer goes out with tailored sessions of interactive, computer and electronics education using computer coding with the Python programming language.
The £35.00 Raspberry Pi computer was developed to get young people coding with over 11 million sold world wide. When Andy was a teenager, he and his friends were able to write computer games on their ZX Spectrum’s and Atari computers. Young people now have Xbox and PlayStation type consoles that can’t be programmed. With a shortage of computer programmers in the UK, Make It Technology is great start for a career as well as developing thinking, problem solving and making something cool!
