Interview and photo opportunities with David Braben
Computer games industry pioneer David Braben is to receive an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Technology from Abertay University this Friday.
David is a founding trustee of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which aims to bring affordable, pocket-sized computers to schools and individuals across the world – inspiring a whole new generation to learn computer programming, as the BBC Micro did in the 1980s.
He is also the co-creator of Elite, the first true 3D computer game, which was released in 1982.
This year David raised almost £1.6 million from over 25,000 supporters on Kickstarter for Elite: Dangerous and successfully listed his company Frontier Developments on the London Stock Exchange.
He will be available for interview and photo opportunities before receiving his Honorary Doctorate.
