Google has launched Coder
The software was designed in part as an educational tool to introduce app development to students, educators or just those that want to dip their toes in the app development water. The open source code library is available on GitHub for those developers interested in helping fix bugs, build new features, etc.
The Coder website provides details on how to participate. You’ll need a Raspberry Pi Model B ($35USD) plus a 5V 1A Power Supply ($6USD), 4GB (or larger) SD Card ($8USD), and an optional Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module for Pi ($12USD). Links are provided on the Coder website on where to buy the parts.
It’s a nice double dip for learning about current technology. Put together a simple computer and then write simple code for it. Experienced developers could find that the project is an enjoyable way to help introduce coding to their kids, friends, or practically anyone with a little technical interest.
