The MagPi hits 1 million downloads since relaunch!

It’s always tricky relaunching a product, especially one with an established fanbase. 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 in newsagents around the world and being the first magazine to put a computer on the cover.

Now we have a new milestone, and one that we’re very proud of: one million free downloads of the issues in that time period. It says to us that you like what we do, and that you like the magazine remaining available as a free PDF. This is very important to us, as we’re serving an open-source community dedicated to helping people learn computing and experiment with making.


This issue did pretty well for some reason

As we push out physical copies to more countries this year, we’re still making sure that the PDF version of The MagPi is available for everyone. We hope you all enjoy The MagPi in 2016, and we look forward to your next million downloads!

Speaking of which, look out for the latest issue, out now! The MagPi 42 has more Raspberry Pi Zero projects for you to try out, a look at the ten best HATs and a tutorial on how to make your own HAT.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go celebrate.
