Issue #49 — Ambiance

Friday 23 May 2014

Hi everyone

This week the Foundation published documentation for the forthcoming compute module and added a kit to accompany Carrie Anne’s book Adventures in Raspberry Pi to the swag store.

Last Friday Ben published usage guides for XBMC and Python Games on the documentation.

The members of the Education team that attended the San Francisco Maker Faire are now back (jetlagged) and will be writing up their experience over the next couple of weeks.

Ben also booked a trip to the States this week – he’ll be touring hackspaces, schools and communities for two and a half weeks in August. See his note in the first Maker Faire blog post.

Did you know we share all the links in each issue of Pi Weekly on our social network channels in the days following sending? Follow us on Twitter and Google+ to get the feed.
