Just a short one this week as I’m on holiday in San Sebastian. Make sure to look out for the MagPi in newsagents in the UK (and soon the US) as it was launched as a 100 page print copy this week! The MagPi is now the Foundation’s official magazine.
Also this week it was announced that Picademy@Google will be taking place in Birmingham at the new Google Garage.
