The Raspberry Pi is a mini computer that was originally intended for schoolchildren and students. It is therefore very cheap and only costs around 35 euros. This mini-computer enables initial contact with Linux, shell
scripting, programming, physical computing and can also be used in productive use. Incidentally, you can learn a lot about the basic functioning of computers with the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi was developed due to a decline in the number of applicants for the computer science course at the University of Cambridge. Instead of
pure theory, the aim was to upgrade the course with practical applications.
