The Raspberry Pi, a portable single-board computer, was originally created with the intention to promote computer science education in schools in lesser developed countries. Although it comes without keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc., the portability, affordability and ease of use meant that anyone could have access to the facilities that an average CPU provides. Initially a project of modest aspirations, the Raspberry Pi's popularity has propelled it to becoming the highest selling British computer (selling over 18 million by March 2018).

Programming at Early Ages
Educators agree that the best age to learn a skill like math or language is ages 5 - 11 years old. Similarly, children need to start learning coding at an early age to build a deeper foundation for their future. more

The Raspberry Pi foundation provides Raspbian, a Debian-based Linux distribution, and promotes Python and Scratch as the main programming language. The processing power varies from model to model, the Raspberry Pi 3 has 10 times the performance as the Raspberry Pi 1, but one must not be deceived its size. The Raspberry Pi was built to perform in much the same way a standard computer does with only a few limitations.
