Reddit: what do people use their Pis for?

A thread about Raspberry Pi ended up on the front page of Reddit today, and it’s a doozy. There are thousands of people taking part, and some Pi projects mentioned that we’d never even imagined people taking on. Some of them made our little hearts swell with pride. Teaching machines for schools in Ecuador, prosthetic... Continue reading

As a teacher of ICT and Computing this interested me a lot, especially bearing in mind the Foundation’s mission and the state of Computing... Continue reading

Issue 5 of The MagPi out now!

Another month, another MagPi. This issue has a page from the Raspithon team about their 48-hour coding marathon; a new electronics project from Mike Cook (remember those steady hands games where you’d guide a loop around a bent wire without allowing anything to touch?); a slightly more advanced project where you’ll be hooking up a...
