element14 Community adds new accessories, tutorials and hosts "Double the Memory Pi Challenge" to support Raspberry Pi development

London - 19 November 2012 - Committed to speeding the adoption of new technology for engineers and enthusiasts, the award-winning element14 Community, a part of global electronics distributor Premier Farnell [LON:PFL], has launched the Code Exchange  to complement its popular Raspberry Pi Group.  Integrated with GitHub, Code Exchange offers Pi fans a secure environment to easily upload and modify code to collaborate with peers on the element14 Community.  The Code Exchange also provides a range of user guides, educational examples and Python programming tutorials from the Python Foundation to help Raspberry Pi users get started. 

"The Code Exchange on the element14 Community adds yet another level of secure collaboration for users, giving them access to an abundance of resources, including learning code and sharing project ideas with fellow Raspberry Pi users," said Dianne Kibbey, global head of community, element14. "The very nature of the exchange is what the element14 Community is all about - offering engineers, students and DIYers an easy way to interact with one another to advance their designs."

Introduced in February when the device was launched, the element14 Raspberry Pi Group has 7,700 global members, attracts 38,000 weekly visits and continues to grow in popularity. Pi users and enthusiasts have an open forum to exchange project ideas through the Group, plus they can purchase the new 512MB Raspberry Pi Model B and a wide range of accessories to enhance their Pi experience. These include element14's exclusive new WiPi adaptors and PiView cables to connect to WiFi networks and VGA monitors.

In the spirit of the holidays and collaboration, element14's "Double the Memory Raspberry Pi Challenge" celebrates the new higher performance capabilities of the Raspberry Pi Model B. Pi fans are invited to blog about what they could do with double the memory power for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Entries must be received by 16th December, and the Community will choose the winner from among five finalists.
