At MakerCon, I had the pleasure of sitting down with James Adams, the Director of Hardware Engineering for Raspberry Pi. We talked about his role in the design of the Linux single-board computer and the newest hardware. Their new Model B+, the HAT specification, and the Compute Module.

James is also on the team behind Slice, the Compute Module-based media player. In our interview, we covered how the process of developing Slice lead to software and hardware improvements in the Compute Module. Come to World Maker Faire New York this weekend to see a prototype of Slice and check out all the Raspberry Pi projects and programming.
