One of the tables that got a significant amount of interest was the one with the working Raspberry Pi on it.
This was Pi number 7 and belongs on the Centre for Computing History.
Various demo’s were on display throughout the day, including a live Twitter stream via Midori showing tweets relating to the event. Here is a picture of that stream with one of my tweets about the Raspberry Pi being on display at the top. It was one of those slightly surreal moment.s
At one point people were playing the classic ZX Spectrum game Manic Minor via a port of the Spectrum emulator FUSE.
After lunch, Eben Upton from the Raspberry Pi Foundation took to the stage and gave a very interesting talk about his background, and obviously a lot of information on the Pi.
There we some really nice anecdotes including Eben saying that the Raspberri Pi model A and B were in honour of the BBC Micro models.Check out A Slice of Raspberry Pi at Beeb@30 post from earlier in the week
Cutting the Cake
There was a beautiful birthday cake in the shape of a BBC Micro (in fact there were multiple cakes as I don’t think all the people there would have been able to share just one cake) made lovingly by Elizabeth Morgan.
And here is Sophie cutting the cake:
We did all get a bit – and it tasted every bit as nice as it looked! Nom, nom, nom.
