If you have, or are interested in the Raspberry Pi, then you might want to download the new issue of The MagPi digital magazine.

The-MagPi-issue-18-en1

This is how the Raspberry Pi guys describe the magazine:

The MagPi, a free online magazine dedicated to the Raspberry Pi, whose first issue was released a few days ago, is a perfect example of that. It’s been put together entirely by volunteers, guided by Ash Stone, Jason “Jaseman” Davies, Meltwater and other names you may recognise from the forums and comments on this site. I was broadly aware they were up to something, but I was amazed at the scope of what they sent me to look at earlier in the week, and I’ve been really, really impressed by the first issue. There are Debian and Puppy guides, articles on computing history, ideas for robotics projects, tutorials in Scratch and Python (with code you can type in yourself, just like in the good old days), features about the Raspberry Pi itself, and other goodies to dig into. I really can’t recommend it enough, and if you haven’t been lucky enough to get to the head of the queue, you don’t need a Raspberry Pi to find it useful (you might actually find the magazine good preparation before yours arrives).

It is a really interesting read – so go download it today, and let us know what you think!

For anyone who’s new to Arduino and not sure how or where to begin, Arduino For Dummies and Arduino Projects For Dummies are the ideal companions and we have 2 copies of each to give away – and here are the winners.

Arduino-FD_thumb4 Arduino-Projects-FD_thumb4

The Arduino is a cheap and readily-available hardware development platform based around an open source, programmable circuit board. It’s being used in workshops, classrooms and homes around the world for fun, for art, for science and even for profit.

Just published, Arduino For Dummies does not assume any prior knowledge or skill on the part of the reader, and provides all the information needed to get up and running.

In his book, John Nussey guides the readers on key areas such as: where to buy Arduino; installing Arduino; creating basic projects that produce light, sound and motion; getting data in and out of the Arduino; connecting the Arduino to servos and sensors; and extending the capabilities using shields and specialist hardware.

Arduino Projects For Dummies is authored by Brock Craft, who introduced Arduino into the UK along with its creator, Massimo Banzi.

Starting with a quick refresher on the basics, it features 11 projects which are fun to build and introduce different aspects of the Arduino board. These include: Building an Arduino clock; Automating your garden’s watering system; Constructing a Keypad Entry System; Creating an RFID reader; Installing a tweeting cat flap; Automating the home; and Building a robot car.

What did you have to do to win

To win a both Arduino books you had to tell us what you would like to do with Arduino.

The winners were:

Laura Pritchard : I’d try out installing a tweeting cat flap for our cats.

Bob Green : I want to develop a reliable automated greenhouse watering system the measures soil moisture and then provides an appropriate amount of water to each plant.

Congratulations guys, I will be in touch shortly.

Stay tuned for more contests soon, and thanks to our friends at Wiley for the books.
