The MagPi – A Magazine For Raspberry Pi Users – Issue 3 is here!

Pt 1226

The MagPi – A Magazine For Raspberry Pi Users. Issue 3 is out via Liz at the Pi blog.

The third issue of The MagPi, the Raspberry Pi community’s free-to-download magazine, comes out today, and there’s more content in there than ever. Jaseman (with help from Chris “tjz” Stagg and Antiloquax’s spare Raspberry Pi) has compiled a list of Debian essentials to try on your Raspberry Pi – including more than 150 free games. The beginners’ projects for interfacing using the GPIO ports on your Raspberry Pi continue (if you’re new to The MagPi, it’s worth reading through the issues 1 and 2 first); there’s more on that robot arm, a picture tutorial on making ribbon cable, and some ideas from Meltwater (and Rosie, age 5) on introducing the Raspberry Pi to small kids. There are more C, Scratch and Python tutorials…tell you what. Rather than describe everything that’s in the magazine, I’ll leave it to you to download your own copy.

Speaking of Pi… This week we’ll have 2 new awesome Pi products, STAY TUNED!!!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
