Linux Format Projects
You may have noticed that I have worked with Linux Format magazine for some time (I started in 2010 writing one page a month, the user groups section) and these days I write a number of pages each month. My main area of work is the Pi User section, which I have been writing since 2015. Typically the content in the magazine is copyright. But the editor has graciously enabled me to share some of the Pi User content via my blog. The content is still under copyright, but for personal use or use in clubs and schools the reader is free to download and use the content as long as no edits are made, and the Linux Format cover page and logos remain.
I'll be adding more content to the list as and when it is released.

Linux Voice Projects
A magazine that I used to work with were Linux Voice and they had an interesting model where their content was released nine months after the magazine had been put on sale, it was released under a Creative Commons Licence which enables anyone to download the magazine for free.
With thanks to the editorial team I can now provide a download of the many tutorials that I have written for Linux Voice.

pi-topCHAMPIONS @The National Museum of Computing (February 19 2017)
I ran a drop in workshop teaching the basics of GPIO Zero and Morse code using the Raspberry Pi.
Here is my slide deck, you are free to copy and modify, but no commercial use.
