I love it! There is a lot of very interesting articles and tutorials. Great realisation of good idea for magazine.

I wouldn’t necessarily have expected to find myself saying this, but Goli Mohammadi’s duct tape article is genuinely the most enjoyable thing I’ve read this week.


Well done all absolutely excellent read.


Brilliant read for a first issue with a good balanced content. I wish you the best of success for the future.
The ad for the forthcoming issue of The MagPi was interesting, a Google AIY Vision Project in the offing, now that would be a great freebie on the front of The MagPi :-)


Mine arrived this morning – a great read and ideal for folk looking to get going in hackspaces! I particularly liked the fact that it is not just focused on electronics – there’s also short intros to welding and woodwork for example.


It’s different and just interesting!

You can’t say that about much print magazines nowadays.
