An A to Z Beginners Guide to Installing RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Recently, we shared a handy Learning System tutorial that demonstrates a number of ways to install and use retro gaming emulators and add arcade controls to your RasPi. Well, here is a handy “A to Z” guide to installing RetroPie, another option for console emulation on your pie — a guide specifically tuned to getting Super Nintendo on your Pi — created by MidiTheKid who has created a number of Super Nintendo case and controller mods over the course of the last year.
This is a very helpful step-by-step tutorial from someone truly dedicated to getting SNES on the RasPi that includes a number of tips and tricks learned along the way! Check out the guide here:
With a Raspberry Pi, game emulation software and genuine arcade controls from Adafruit, you can build a dedicated retro game station and re-live these classic quarter-chompers. (Members Only jacket not included.) (read more)

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
