Raspithon!

While reading up on the latest RaspberryPi news, the front page of http://www.raspberrypi.org had a post that quickly caught my eye: Raspithon - 48 hours of Python.

Hosted by Ryan Walmsley and joined by his friends Ben, Edward, and Luke, this group of 12 to 16 year olds from around the globe have decided to join forces to hack on their RasPis. They decided that by organizing a weekend sprint, they'll sharpen their Python skills, raise some money for the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and produce a fun game to share with the community.

They're looking to build a game about being stuck in space during an alien attack, and are going to be hosting the source on GitHub. Check out their blog at http://www.raspithon.co.uk for more details and to follow along as the weekend goes on.

Throughout their sprint, they'll be collecting donations to give to the Foundation.
