engineerbynight is off to a good start with her debut Instructable “SPI on the Pi: Communicating with a SPI 3-axis accelerometer using a Raspberry Pi”.


Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Good work by engineerbynight. She uses a library by another Mike (McCauley) at http://www.open.com.au/mikem/bcm2835/ which Adafruit may wish to include in their tutorials.

    While there is good work going on in the python world, there are ALOT of us comfortable with C (either Old School or via Arduino work).

    Thanks for posting gems like this.

  2. Aw, thanks!

    It’s just the tip of the iceburg, for sure. But I was so excited to figure SPI out, I just had to share it right away.

    I’m looking forward to polishing this tutorial up, adding more as I go.
