This week on the podcast I have a range of engineers to inspire us all and Chris Vallance joins us again bringing back evidence of his hunt for prizes!
Some think modern UK engineering hasn't had the profile it deserves, in an effort to remedy that the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering has been launched. It's a million pound award that it's hoped will achieve the same status as a Nobel Prize.
So, what are you waiting for? Get in to the game and set your standards high - it seems that there is lot you can go for when it comes to competitive engineering. Be sure and let us know when you win of course...
Well, the fantastically named Raspberry Pi is about to become available. A computer the size of a credit card and easy on your pocket, it could be just the think for folk who like to know what their machines can really do. Eben Upton is an engineer with Broadcom and a trustee of the Raspberry Pi foundation and he told me all about it.
Thanks to Vruz for the tip off there! Nom!
Once you have your tiny light computer - you might be thinking about learning more about code. But it's hard to start without a few examples to aim for.
Plenty for Outriders to get on with this week, but indeed as Vruz got in touch to hear more about Raspberry Pi - you can always direct me to find the people behind your favourite sites and computing classics.
