The MagPi
If there’s one thing we’re passionate about here at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, it’s sharing our community’s passion for making with technology. Back in January, the Education team exhibited at the Bett Show with a special Educator’s Edition of our fabulous magazine, The MagPi. The goal was to share our projects and programmes with educators who... Continue reading
It gives me great pleasure to announce that The MagPi, the official Raspberry Pi magazine, is now available – fully translated and localised – in Germany, thanks to a collaboration with our friends at CHIP. Germany was one of the first places outside the UK to take an interest in Raspberry Pi, so it’s quite fitting that it’s... Continue reading
We’ve been avidly following Tim Peake’s adventures in space in The MagPi for the last six months, especially all the excellent work he’s been doing with the Astro Pis running code from school students across the UK. Tim returned to Earth a couple of weeks ago, so we thought we’d celebrate in The MagPi 47... Continue reading
Scratch is the world-leading visual programming language, created by the boffins at MIT. It’s designed to help kids of all ages learn about computer science within minutes. We think it’s rather cool, and it’s been a core part of Raspberry Pi’s software offering since day one for very obvious reasons. We’ve been working for a while now to... Continue reading

One of the most unique and expressive teaching tools on the Raspberry Pi is Sonic Pi, the live music coding app. It lets you create your own sound your own way, and modify it on the fly in case you’re DJing an event (happens to us all the time). All of this is done in... Continue reading
As you may remember from earlier in the week, the Raspberry Pi 3 is here! The latest version of the Raspberry Pi is the most powerful one yet, and brings with it a whole host of new features such as wireless LAN, Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy. In issue 43 of The MagPi, we... Continue reading
Hi there, Rob from The MagPi again! It’s been a couple of months since we launched issue 40 with the Raspberry Pi Zero attached to the front of it. Since then we’ve seen some excellent projects flying around the internet as you all figure out amazing uses for the tiny Pi. To inspire you to... Continue reading

With The MagPi, we did so with the readers in mind, trying to create the best magazine we could for you folks while building off the excellent work of the first 30 issues. We’ve come a long way over the last 11 months; releasing... Continue reading
