Raspberry Pi Foundation

The idea behind a tiny and affordable computer for kids came in 2006, when Eben Upton, Rob Mullins, Jack Lang and Alan Mycroft, based at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory, became concerned about the year-on-year decline in the numbers and skills levels of the A Level students applying to read Computer Science. From a situation in the 1990s where most of the kids applying were coming to interview as experienced hobbyist programmers, the landscape in the 2000s was very different; a typical applicant might only have done a little web design.

Rocket Lolly Games

It was great when it first began… we were regular Frankie Fans. That was over when Ella Romanos met Andy Leighton, music producer of The Rocky Horror Show. When Oscar Clark found out there was a chance to make a new game based on his favourite obsession there was no stopping the pair of them. In 2015 they set up Rocket Lolly Games Ltd specifically to make games based on the license. What drives them however, is to share the spirit of Rocky (RaRaRah) with as wide an audience as possible and still encapsulate the joy of audience participation that is quintessential for the show.
