The MagPi: now available in a printed edition

Everyone’s favourite Raspberry Pi magazine, The MagPi ( is now available in print edition for issue 6. You can order it online from ModMyPi direct. The magazine also remains available as a free electronic download.

Oh and good news: I spoke with The People In Charge and they were able to drop VAT from the purchase price of the hard copy as magazines are zero rated over here.

The MagPi is produced by a collection of individuals from different backgrounds (including yours truly), all with an interest in computing and the Raspberry Pi. Each month provides articles and interviews covering a wide range of hardware and software projects. Issue 6 features an interview I undertook with David Hunt of Camera Pi fame along with many other excellent articles and tutorials.

The MagPi issue 6 is out

The MagPi issue 6 has been released, featuring an interview written by yours truly with David Hunt of Camera Pi fame. Camera Pi is a superb amalgamation of Pi + DSLR camera that gives David lots of control over the photographic process.
