13 year old mini girl geek sums up the essence of software with one key phrase

13 year old Amy Mather at the CPC Raspberry Jamboree 9th March talking about her game of life simulation for the Raspberry Pi.

In it, there is one particular phrase she used that cleverly summed up my 35 years as a software engineer…. “I want to make the computer do what I want it to do, not what others designed it to do”. Hooray! At last, someone who understands!

The goal of the raspberry pi project was to turn kids from consumers into creators. Amy proved with this one elegant sentence that 1 year on, the project has been a huge success.
