The learning of code language by programmers is vital to computer acumen and online aptitude. Mathematics and computer programming are vital needs of the day. Most of the math courses don’t teach the relevant details and are dependent on long-since defunct concepts. 

Therefore, in a sincere effort to get computational mathematics and other skills to the common people, Raspberry Pi has included two new features. These are Wolfram Language and Mathematica. Although in real life, Mathematica may cost a lot in terms of dollars, on the $25 Raspberry Pi it doesn’t cost a single cent. 

The company officially announced its partnership with Wolfram Research to bundle a free copy of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language into future Raspbian images," today, at the CBM education summit in New York.

The previous attempt at bundling Mathematica with other computers was in the heyday of Steve Jobs. It got picked up by CERN physicists and we now have the Internet. What the future will look like now that this step has been taken is truly thrilling to contemplate. This knowledge comes straight from someone who is intimately attached to the process. 

Stephen Wolfram, the founder of the Wolfram language guarantees that something big is about to happen now that the two features have entered the economy of Raspberry Pi. He stated on his blog, "A pilot release of the Wolfram Language—as well as Mathematica—that will soon be bundled as part of the standard system software for every Raspberry Pi computer."

As a beginner’s learning experience, the Wolfram language is the best there is. On the whole, the educational opportunity this simple decision has made possible will benefit millions in their endeavors. Stephen Wolfram also said that "With the Wolfram Language on Raspberry Pi we’ve got a new path for learning programming—and connecting it to the real world—that a great many people are going to be able to benefit from."
