The Institution of Engineering and Technology has invited Eben Upton to speak at the Prestige Lecture Series Young Professionals' Event. Eben founded the Raspberry Pi Foundation to develop and market a microcomputer for education. The hope is to see the Raspberry Pi used by kids all over the world to learn programming and to serve as an ideal platform for hobbyists to try out new ideas.



Upton, will talk about the transition from large, high performance systems to cheap, low power and potentially disposable hardware and will discuss whether threats to openness could result in complete closure of future hardware platforms.
