Google+ Hangout on Air for MAKE’s Just-Published Vol. 33 #makeymakey #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

MAKE_Vol33

Here’s a great chance to check in with MAKE’s staff and community on topics in their most recent issue, featuring Matt Richardson and Shawn Wallace’s Getting Started with Raspberry Pi book as well as the MaKey-MaKey and the Power Racing Series.

From Maker Media:

Join the editors of MAKE for a live and online conversation on Google+ today about our just-released new issue–Volume 33. The theme of the magazine is “software for makers” so we’ll be checking in with the founders of Makey Makey about their “banana piano” project featured in the magazine. Getting Started with Raspberry Pi authors Matt Richardson and Shawn Wallace will be on hand to talk about their must-have book for Rasp Pi enthusiasts, also featured in the the magazine. And there’s more. We’ll be hanging out with Patrick Callahan from the Power Racing Series, a Maker Faire favorite that adorns the cover of the issue. And MAKE technical editor Sean Ragan will be in the house to talk about his CNC joinery project detailed in the magazine.

This will be a jam-packed half hour so be sure to tune in right here at 2pm PST and 5pm EST. If you’ve got questions for any of the participants be sure to post them in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer them.

The issue is available on newsstands now, via subscription, or in the Maker Shed.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
