Loads of #RaspberryPi & Adafruit stuff in this month’s Linux User & Developer magazine @LinuxUserMag #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

LinuxUser

Michael Horne shared about the latest issue of Linux User & Developer, a magazine in the UK and pointed out that there are Loads of #RaspberryPi stuff in this month’s issue. We were happy to see lots of Adafruit parts and Raspberry Pi accessories highlighted!

Linux User and Developer has fast become the best mainstream magazine for the Raspberry Pi. They regularly print multiple Pi features every month and this month’s is no exception. Here’s a list of the articles you can expect to find when it comes out in shops this coming week:

  • A guide to ‘essential’ add-ons for the Pi including:
    • USB cable with switch
    • Adafruit 16-channel PWM/servo driver board
    • PiBorg PicoBorg Reverse
    • MCP3008 analog-to-digital converter chip
    • Pi Camera
    • The PiTFT screen
    • Sharp IR range finder
    • Adafruit Barometric, temp and altitude sensor
    • Adafruit Electret microphone amplifier
    • Adafruit stereo audio amplifier
  • An entire mini-mag devoted to the Pi including:
    • Dexter Industries’ BrickPi Bookreader project
    • A guide to getting started with Minecraft Pi Edition (including a plug for Kano’s visual Minecraft programming environment)
    • How to mine Bitcoins with the Pi
    • How to use your Pi with BOINC and contribute to international scientific projects
    • A feature on the Compute Module
    • A guide to parallel processing on the Pi with the aim of building a ‘supercomputer’
  • An review of the Wolfson Audio Card (which a higher-than-expected and deserved (IMHO) 4/5 rating)
