A Review of Make: Magazine

I don’t subscribe to many magazines, but I love my subscription to Make: magazine.

And even though I rarely have time to sit down and enjoy a magazine in peace and quiet (parents forget what peace and quiet means), I still manage to get through my Make: magazine cover to cover. I like it that much!

This video is a short review of why I enjoy Make: magazine, and why I think you would enjoy it too.

Here are some highlights:

1. Make: Magazine is published every 2 months.
2. Filled with detailed step-by-step projects
3. Has interesting editorial articles about technology
4. Covers a lot of hobby electronics topics (like Arduino)
5. Has sections dedicated to skill building

Total Honesty:

Nobody paid me to make this review of Make: magazine. I made this video because I personally enjoy the content and rigor and think you might like it too.

That being said – if you are interested in subscribing to Make: magazine I would love for you to use the link below if you so choose:

The above is an affiliate link. At no additional cost to you, I get a kick back from subscriptions that originate from the link. This cash allows me to furnish my mansion in downtown Manhattan, make necessary repairs to my yachts, and fuel the Lamborghini for joy rides.

Do you subscribe to Make: magazine? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

    Michael. I’ve been considering a subscription and would like to contribute to your yacht gas account. However the link you provided seems to be for the print only version. I’d like to subscribe to print and electronic. Can you please put a link up for the combined subscription as well? BTW, I love your work! Currently at 46% of the basic course. I can’t thank you enough for this course. It is a lot easier to learn coding trough quality videos than from a book. What a difference it makes using one’s eyes to examine the code (with line by line animated highlighting) while at the same time listening to the explanation of each line of code. No more looking back and forth between code and explanation, loosing valuable time and more importantly, focus. I also love the enjoyable tone and the fact you start us off from scratch, truly a course for someone with ZERO experience with coding. Here’s hoping the rest of the course is as good as it’s been so far.

      Thanks a ton for posting and your kind words – I am glad you are enjoying the course, thanks for the feedback! The affiliate link above gives me a kickback regardless of what you end up buying (if anything) – so I will get some fuel for sure! Thanks a ton for your kindness! I just got the most recent copy of Make: magazine in the mail today, looking forward to diving into it.

    Yeah, I subscribe to this too, plus –

    a) ‘PasPi’ magazine –,
    b) Raspberry Pi Foundation ‘MagPi’ – magazine (free PDF download) and now
    c) Raspberry Pi Foundation ‘HackSpace’ – magazine (free PDF download).

    I got so famdozzeled by the projects – that I decided I needed to learn electronics – hence why I signed up on this fab site!

    The two main projects I’m attempting to do are the Ultrascope ( ) and the Autonomous RC Car ( )

    Keep up the great work that you do!

      Wow – that telescope project looks awesome!

      I also subscribe to Nuts and Volts magazine – they have some great in-depth articles too. But I am not reading my magazines nearly as much as I was a couple years ago – but my kids do look through them some now.
