Great post by Christopher Stanton in the element14 community!

If you missed the introduction to this series, you will be needing the Raspberry Pi 2 GPS Kit unless you are sufficiently equipped with similar parts or hardware. Ten skilful people were chosen from just over four hundred to receive one of the kits from us at element14 and they may well have other ideas for the kit than for Geocaching, which is great! I look forward to seeing what you build – but there may be some, including those whom have bought the kit, that want to use it for Geocaching and it’s those people whom this build-along is for.
 
I want your input, feedback and comments. If you have any problems while building along I want to know about it and we shall work on a solution. It is also possible that I am not doing this build in the best way or you have an idea! Great, I would love to hear about it, so please add a comment below the blog. Throughout this blog there may be times where I have not gone into detail, but if you look carefully I have embedded hyperlinks into the words or phrases. Usually you can click these for more detailed information about what I am talking about.
 
So have you got the kit yet, or an equivalent? Yes? Good.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
