Now available for online reading, and in PDF, epub, and mobi formats from pragprog.com/magazines.
You may have another kind of toolkit, one with a soldering iron and wire cutters. Hardware hacking is enjoying a renaissance thanks to the popular Arduino single-board computers. This month our Arduino guru Maik Schmidt, author of Arduino: A Quick-Start Guide, returns with another Arduino project, this time showing you how to build your own video game machine for rediscovering the innocent fun of classic games like Asteroids and Breakout.
Tim Ottinger and Jeff Langr are back with some agile advice on making your code virtuous. In doing so, they shuffle their Agile in a Flash cards and draw out card #42, which you have to figure has the answer to everything.
Plus, Dan Wohlbruck is back with another history article, both Brian Tarbox and Andy Hunt get insights into programming from theater, and John Shade wants to talk to your mother.
Now available free to read and share from pragprog.com/magazines.
