Magpi essential

Fri Jul 08, 2016 2:25 pm

As I told in my presentation I really know nothing about computer technologies and I was searching for something to start learning on my RP3. I saw this line of Books/magazines and I was wondering if they were a good starting point or it may ne better to start somewhere else. Do you have any suggestion?

You can read issues of Monthly MagPi for free, but with the Free Gift a Subscription is worth the Money.

Got to say I agree with fruitoftheloom. Well worth reading. The magazines are packed with useful tips and tutorials as well as ideas for projects and the accompanying books are excellent to get you started. You can download all the magazines including past issues from the website as well as the books. I have done this to read on my iPad. But I would also recommend taking out a subscription if you can afford it. The free gift at the moment is a good extra, but if we were all to just download the free pdfs then the magazine wouldn't last long.

I purchased some of the essential line. I hope they are very noob-friendly because its really my first experience on such matter. Is me living in Italy a problem for sign up on the phisical magazine? May it encounter distribution problems?
