Raspberry Pi founder, Eben Upton, is ramping up his efforts to drag the UK IT industry up by its bootstraps, by getting involved in another new initiatives aimed at enthusing the next generation of computer scientists.
Upton will host a career advice hangout next month, using Google's collaboration tool to answer questions from a panel of nine eager IT jobseekers.
“The Raspberry Pi Foundation is taking steps to invest in grass roots talent, for the benefit of the industry in the long run,” said Upton.
“However, those trying to enter or progress in the IT industry now still need support to ensure they can develop their career and gain the skills needed to deliver the achievements that will make the UK IT industry a world leader.”
Upton's profile has rocketed thanks to his involvement with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which has built a £22 single-board computer, intended to introduce programming to the next generation of UK computer scientists.
The bare bones Raspberry Pi has captured the imagination of enthusiasts, and the Foundation hopes this user base can help get the devices in to the classroom.
