Issue #173 - Challenge
The Raspberry Pi community has been the hot topic of the week, with social media buzzing over the hashtag #PiCommunity, celebrating the people and projects that have helped to shape the journey of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
In other exciting news, this week saw the launch of the new Astro Pi Challenge, allowing all school children across Europe the chance to send their code into space with ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet.
We’ve also seen announcements from Amazon, Hackaday, and The PiOT Challenge, along with some awesome builds for you to try yourself.
Have a great week and we’ll see you next Friday for more Pi.
