MacVoices #17126: Road to Macstock – David Cohen On What You Can Do With A Raspberry Pi

This Road to Macstock goes across the pond to chat with David Cohen of TechFan, who will be discussing the benefits and capabilities of the Raspberry Pi, the small, super-affordable computer. David explains the features of the computer that is perfect for those who want to do a little hardware hacking, want to learn to code, or just want a to experiment. If you think it isn’t for you, wait until David tells you all the things you could do with it, for very little money.

Guests:

David Cohen has been interested in all things digital since his exposure to the Sinclair ZX81 microcomputer and the Atari VCS back in his youth. A native of the United Kingdom, he has parlayed his fascination with the computer world into a career of consultancy in IT strategy, design and security.

Like many of us, he can’t drop his passions while not at work – he is a current co-host of the TechFan podcast with fellow Macstock alum Tim Robertson, and has formally hosted the MyMac podcast and written for the MyMac.com website. Follow him on Twitter.

David lives in Manchester, UK (close to the BBC!) and has a wife and two children who are almost as gadget mad as he is.
