Google and Raspberry Pi join forces to create Coder
Learning how to code is becoming the new must, if only because it offers never ending challenges to the mind.
Over the last few years, interest in coding (especially for the web) has led to a blossoming of resources that help average people learn how to program from scratch. Google has decided to join the fun with a new tool called Coder — along with the help of the low-cost Raspberry Pi PC.
With Coder, users can develop their own apps for the web and then host them on a miniature server located directly on the Raspberry Pi. The overall cost for the DIY programming project, using Google’s recommended materials, is under $50 — and all of the educational materials are free.

The whole process, according to the developers, takes just 10 minutes.
