Computer programming

Computer programming (often shortened to programming) is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs.

Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requirements of algorithms including their correctness and resources consumption, and implementation (commonly referred to as coding) of algorithms in a target programming language.

Source code is written in one or more programming languages.

The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate performing a specific task or solving a given problem.

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single board computers developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

The original Raspberry Pi and this Raspberry Pi 2 are manufactured in several board configurations through licensed manufacturing agreements with Newark element 14, RS Components and Egoman. Egoman produces a version distributed solely in China and Taiwan, which can be distinguished from other Pis by their red colouring and lack of FCC/CE marks.

The hardware is the same across all manufacturers.
