Raspberry Pi gets its own app store

Raspberry Pi gets its own app store

Raspberry Pi, for those of you who aren’t aware of it, it is a revolutionary credit-card-sized single-board computer created by the not-for-profit Raspberry Pi Foundation. It stormed through its Kickstarter funding and has since sold over 500,000 units.

 

Having started out with the modest intention of stimulating basic computer science teaching in schools, it has struck a cord with the world’s aspiring and professional programmer communities alike.

 

Raspberry has today officially opened its doors to its community of users to enable them to gather and share their projects via its newly set up Pi store. This is the first step in formalizing the process of collaboration between Raspberry Pi users.

 

It aims to be community driven and does not aim to make money. Currently only having a single paid item available, we are yet to see what form this app store will take when the wider community takes an interest.
