Stay up to date with piweekely every Friday:

The piweekly newsletter is a compilation of news from the Raspberry Pi community, including updates from the Foundation, developments in the technical realm and reports of various notable ongoings, as well as links to interesting projects from individuals and organisations around the UK and the rest of the world, not only technical hardware and software projects but also community events and initiatives.

In August 2013, we were featured on the Raspberry Pi website and were praised and highly recommended by Liz Upton. Read the post – Pi Weekly: a free email newsletter

Get started with the latest issue: #11 – Stratos:

This week it seems that the internet has been invaded by one bear, Bionic Babbage. We would like to congratulate Dave Ackerman for the success of his breaking the world record for highest armateur live photo. If you didn’t already know, Dave is a Raspberry Pi enthusiast whose hobby it is to send Pis up on helium balloons to take pictures of the Earth. This time Babbage Bear (the Raspberry Pi mascot) manned the mission and took pictures along the way, before reconstructing Felix Baumgartner’s record breaking freefall. All this on a budget of £300 (compared to Red Bull’s £30,000,000).
