When you think of a personal computer brand name that has a fruit as it’s logo, you will most probably name Apple as your obvious first choice. But don’t be fooled, there’s another fruit branded computer company out there that is equally doing its bit to reach a big global audience. Our journey takes us to Cambridge, where we meet Eben Upton, CEO and founder of Raspberry Pi. The company develops single-board computers, the size of a credit card, to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries. To this date, eight million devices have been sold worldwide, making it the best selling UK personal computer. For this great achievement, Eben was recently appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE), in the 2016 Birthday Honours for services to business and education.
