Today the Foundation announced that the MagPi team have handed over the community magazine to be run in-house, taking the magazine to a professional level. It’s still a free monthly PDF, but they hope to see it in the high street shops in day in some form. Download Issue 31 now!
Rachel and I also announced a new programme for young people: Raspberry Pi Creative Technologists. It’s a funded 12-month programme for 16-21 year olds to explore creative projects with technology and applications are now open.
I’m currently at NorDevCon – a developer conference in Norwich – speaking on the business track about how Raspberry Pi funds itself.
To those of you attending the Raspberry Pi birthday party this weekend – see you there!
Thanks to new sponsors PiJuice!
