The MagPi magazine has been published online each month since May 2012. Each 32 page magazine is created entirely by enthusiasts using the Raspberry Pi. It can be read online or downloaded for free from our website, www.TheMagPi.com, which receives 100,000 hits every month.
We have always wanted to make the magazine available in printed form, so we did a test print run of issue 6. The result was a large number of requests for all back issues to be printed. However there are significant upfront costs associated with professionally printing a magazine and a significant volume of magazines must be printed to get the price point to where we want it to be.
I have been reading this magazine for the past three months and strongly recommend it! Grab a free PDF here to check it out!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
