Next year promises to be bigger and better with more focussed teacher education on the horizon, more Raspberry Pi to give away and more useful accessories such as bread boards to give away.
Does the Pi have an official programming language?
Yes. The Raspberry Pi Foundation recommends Python as a language for learners. Any language which will compile for ARMv6 can be used with the Raspberry Pi so you are not limited to using Python. C, C++, Java, Scratch, Ruby and the Wolfram Language all come installed by default on the Raspberry Pi.
