Micro: Bit passes into the hands of the Micro: Bit Educational Foundation


Those who understand bureaucracy and Hardware Libre Surely they were already expecting news like this, but for the vast majority, now, the famous British plaque called Micro: bit passes into the hands of the Micro: Bit Educational Foundation. This Foundation will be in charge of creating new versions of Micro: Bit but above all of spreading the plate in other countries and schools in the European Union.

More or less as the Raspberry Pi Foundation is currently doing with the raspberry computer. But in this case, the expectation and need is more important than in the case of the Raspberry Pi, something difficult to have.

The creation of the Micro: Bit Educational Foundation is something expected but not with that name

The Micro: Bit Educational Foundation will be in charge of creating and managing educational projects related to the Micro: Bit board, it will also be the Foundation in charge of selling and distributing this famous SBC board. Despite Micro: Bit launched later than expectedIn a short time, more than 1 million units have been sold, with larger sales and distributions being projected. In addition, in a short time, the official website of Micro: Bit has achieved more than 13 million visits, something difficult to achieve in a few months as this has been.

In any case, the BBC and the other companies that make up the consortium will not part with the project so easily, will continue to support and work on the Hardware Libre but under a more legal form and in accordance with the philosophy and status of the project.

This has already happened with Raspberry Pi and sooner or later it will also come to Arduino, a project of Hardware Libre that it has had its problems for not making the corresponding legal change and that it even jeopardized the project at the time, but fortunately such a thing did not happen. Despite everything, if you want to work or get a Micro:Bit board, don't hesitate to stop by their official website.
