Raspberry Pi enthusiasts or those looking to learn a little more about the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC and its additional hardware accessories, HATs and code. Are sure to be interested to know that the official Raspberry Pi magazine MagPi has this week released a range ofcoding books all of which are available to download for free as a PDF.
The official Raspberry Pi Foundation website explains a little more about the new range of Raspberry Pi reference books which show you how to use the command line, create games, experiment with the Sense HAT as well as code music using Sonic Pi.
So, in 2015, we set out to make sure all the essential reading from the magazine wasn’t consigned to a dusty and dog-eared pile under the coffee table. Enter the MagPi Essentials range! They’re bite-sized books that build on the best articles in the magazine and mould them into a cohesive, easily digested form.
We’ve recently been hard at work putting the finishing touches on the latest batch, and I’m excited to report that the fifth to eighth books are out in hard copy now! We’ll spare you the minute details on each title in the series here, but I’ve hijacked the ‘You might also like’ doohickey on the right so you can read up on each book individually.
Want them? Point your mouse fingers towards The Pi Hut or Amazon. You can even grab them directly from The MagPi’s own little lemonade stand if you want. Like everything else Raspberry Pi, they’re also super-affordable: £2.99 on our Apple and Android apps, or £3.99 in print. Not sure you can afford them all? You can also download each book as a free PDF too: just click on the appropriate link in our catalogue.
