Welcome to Issue 2 of The MagPi, a community-led magazine keeping you up to date with all things Raspberry Pi.

What a month it's been following the release of Issue 1! The interest we received has astounded us, with over 100,000 views by readers as far afield as the US, New Zealand, Russia, and South America. We have had positive reviews from the BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones, the Wall Street Journal Tech, and many others. Thank you all for your kind words of support and constructive comments.

Following the release of Issue 1, some of our readers soon highlighted an error in the logo for JavaScript. We hope that this has not caused too much confusion and wish to clarify that the official logo for JavaScript is as follows:

Thank you for drawing this to our attention.

In this issue of the MagPi, we return to the Python Pit to give you more tasty tutorials and tips whilst also introducing you to our brand new section, the Command Line Clinic. The Scratch Patch will be returning in Issue 3. We invite you into the world of interfacing, how to install an operating system on an SD card, and setting up the basics on your Raspberry Pi. There's also more on building the Skutter robotic arm. If this wasn’t enough, we thought we would treat you to a double-page spread dissecting the Pi and much, much more.

Before drawing this editorial to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank not only the Raspberry Pi Foundation for warmly welcoming us, but also the MagPi team and all of its contributors for their continual hard work and dedication to producing the magazine.

We hope you continue to enjoy reading the MagPi and that it inspires you to get programming.

The MagPi is an online magazine dedicated to the Raspberry Pi, created by the community for the community. It's a great way to get to grips with learning how to program your Pi and how to get started on building hardware projects; it’ll also help you find out more about the community around the device and demystify the command line.
