Announcement from Drag ‘N Drop, 23rd October, 2015.

Drag ‘N Drop is a quarterly magazine in PDF, mainly for users of RISC OS on the Raspberry Pi but content will be of interest to all RISC OS 5 users.

Visitors to the London show can get their hands on volume 7 issue 1 at a special price of £3.00! A sample can be viewed NOW at www.dragdrop.co.uk and shortly after the show you can purchase the full edition on the website and in !Store. Inside the latest issue:

  • News, Comment, Beginner’s Tips, Application Updates.
  • Files of the World – the series continues with Windows Metafiles (WMF) and a listing for an application to convert them to Draw.
  • Python Primary School – Term 2 of the programming series.
  • Desktop Retro Gaming – have you ever wanted to make old games look cool by running in their own window, well learn how with this great new series of programming desktop games.
  • Weblog – a short look at Gumtree, the online alternative to eBay.
  • C-Side – check your Roman numerals with this instalment of the series in programming in C.
  • 3D Graphics – for 8-bit and RISC OS users alike, creating wireframe graphics in BBC Basic.
  • &CAFE – bewildered by all that hexadecimal lark? Come down to the &CAFE for some light hearted conversation.
  • Father Christmas’s Crackers – a seasonal (if a little early) type-in game which runs on the desktop. Can you defuse the booby-trapped crackers in time?

Articles are written in an informal style designed to encourage new or returning users and programmers.

Each issue of Drag N Drop costs £3.50 on a pay-as-you go basis when purchased through the Drag N Drop website. You can “try before you buy”: free samples are available for download. You can also purchase it from !Store at a higher price of £4.50 but including the “type-in” listings.
