40 years ago, the world first personal computer Apple-I borned in Silicon Valley.
Apple-I starts computers for everyone including kids!
When I'm 8 years, I met dreamy machine, MSX a descendant of that.

I invented the $15 simplest personal computer "IchigoJam" for all kids.
Ichigo is a strawberry and 15(Ichi Go) in Japanese.

3 Nov, we are holding a BASIC programming workshop for kids using IchigoJam:
First BASIC Programming on IchigoJam for Kids - PCN Silicon Valley | Meetup

Let's start programming at a young age!
There are many computers in our lives.
If you can program, you get a great power!

These IchigoJam works are made by kids
(from PCN Kids Programming Contest 2016 Summer)

IchigoJam is the simplest computer such as Apple-I.
It has RAM4KB, ROM32KB, BASIC interpreter, Video output, Keyboard input.

IchigoJam can build your self about less than 1 hour by the first solder.

After building, let's start programming in BASIC
