Pi has sold 14 million devices in its six years existence overtaking the Sir Clive Sinclair’s Spectrum and Lord Sugar’s CPC 464 to become the best-selling British computer in history. 

As well as teaching thousands of children to code – Pi’s primary purpose – it has had considerable success in industrial applications. 

It also knocked Intel out of this market. Last week Intel said it would discontinue three competing devices.

The Royal Academy writes:
The Raspberry Pi Foundation, through its easy to use, credit card-sized microcomputers, is redefining how people learn about and engage with computers. From initially setting out to help increase the number of computer science applicants to the University of Cambridge, the Raspberry Pi team has put the power of computing into the hands of people all over the world. 

By doing so, they are helping to ensure future generations are capable of understanding and shaping our increasingly digital world, able to solve the problems that matter to them, and equipped for the jobs of the future.
The nominated team members are: 

Dr Eben Upton CBE, CEO
James Adams, COO
Pete Lomas, Director of Engineering, Norcott Technologies
Dom Cobley, Engineer
Gordon Hollingworth, Director of Engineering
Liz Upton, Director of Communications
