The MagPi is a free fanzine for users of the Raspberry Pi computer. It was created by the community as an unofficial volunteer produced Raspberry Pi publication and in 2015 was handed over to the Raspberry Pi Foundation to be run in-house as the official Raspberry Pi magazine. It was launched in May 2012 and contains news, projects and tutorials.
Writing in LinuxNov at the time of the launch, Mohamed Hussein considered it to be "really worth" downloading for its informative and helpful content. The first issue was found by Harry Fairhead in I Programmer to be uninspiring, with the lack of hardware available to writers being noted. However, he did consider it to be a "venture worth supporting" in the longer term.
Writing in The Wall Street Journal's Tech Europe blog, Ben Rooney described the magazine as having a "comforting nostalgic feel" but questioned whether this would appeal to a new generation of programmers.
