This is a last-minute call for pie, er, Raspberry Pi. One of the brains behind the credit card-sized computer, Robert Bishop, will be stopping by Union Station in Kansas City at 5:30 p.m. Friday, August 23, as part of a U.S. roadshow to help kids learn computer programming and share the origins of the product. He will talk about recent developments and technical information, have an in-depth Q&A and open up an opportunity for attendees to share Raspberry Pi projects they’re working on. Introduced in 2012, the computer plugs into a TV and keyboard for use much like a desktop PC and costs $35 or less.
