Issue 11 of the MagPi – out now!

April’s MagPi has just been released. As well as all the usual goodies, this month the magazine (free to download, as always) contains features on controlling your house’s heating system using a Pi, a guide to turning your Pi into a wireless access point (I’m thinking of pointing one in the general direction of my village bus stop, where I often find myself standing with only a 2G signal for my phone, waiting impatiently until the bus turns up half an hour late), and some really cute Minecraft pointers. This month’s cover, as you can see, was designed in Minecraft: Pi Edition.

There are competitions in which you can win a Pi and add-ons like a Quick2Wire kit, and, excitingly, an opportunity to win one of the very scarce blue Raspberry Pis which were produced by RS components for our first anniversary. (They’re so scarce we don’t even have one at the Foundation!)

Thanks, as always, to the MagPi team – you guys do an amazing job.

If you’re interested in contributing to the magazine, whether your skill is in writing, designing, typesetting or other production work, give Ash and the team a shout at At the moment they’re particularly in need of someone to help with testing and other technical editorial work; as well as someone with layout skills.



Are you sure the Foundation’s blue Raspberry Pi didn’t get “lost” on Rob’s table of goodies?


Stay tuned for articles and possibly monthly columns on 3-D graphics and Java – according to a certain little roaming gnome who told me! ;D


just to let the magpi guys know

issue 11 has not shown up on iTunes newsstand just yet


LOVE THE COVER!!! Excelent work guys :)


should be there now…the newstand app is not updated by members of our team (striclty speaking) but by the developers of the newstand app…so this can be a bit delayed.

they have also updated the app so the most recent mag appears at the top of the list.



Thanks for the Magazine – would love a smaller file size option to download as well if possible for my Kindle..


Still waiting on my printed copies that I pledge to their kick starter campaign for. :(


Hi Richard,

See our latest Kickstarter update – we are nearly there now.
