Welcome to Issue 21 of The MagPi magazine, our biggest issue yet with an incredible 48 pages! Once again we are bursting at the seams with all that is new in the Raspberry Pi world.
To mark the Raspberry Pi’s second birthday, we have a MagPi exclusive four page interview with Eben Upton reviewing the past two years and what the future holds for this credit card sized beauty.
Also in this issue, Jacob, a young Raspberry Pi enthusiast, describes how he made his Raspberry Pi portable, we have more from Project Curacao plus ModMyPi give us a demo on motion sensing. We feature a great article on using the command line to troubleshoot network issues, take an in-depth look at turning your Raspberry Pi into an internet radio device, show you how to use a Raspberry Pi with a weather station and also feature how to remotely manage your home saltwater aquarium.
If that wasn’t enough, we conclude with a classic game by heading deep beneath the earth, to the realm of the Dwarven Heartland, in the hope of finding gold in the text adventure “Stronghold of the Dwarven Lords”.
As always, we keep you up to date with some of the latest Raspberry Pi goodies available for purchase, upcoming events, great competition prizes from PCSL and two new book reviews.
The last two weeks has been an exciting time for us at MagPi HQ. You may have seen from the Raspberry Pi Foundation site that we launched a short Kickstarter campaign to create a binder to hold all the Volume 2 magazines (issues 9 to 19). This campaign far exceeded our target and we are pleased to announce that production of the binders is now under way. Don’t worry if you missed the Kickstarter. The binder and all the Volume 2 magazines will soon be available from our retailers (see page 8).
