In this resource you’re going to write a program that will allow a user to type in a city they’re travelling to, and the date they’ll be arriving. The program will then use open data from OpenWeatherMap to find out what the weather is like in that city at that time, and advise the user on what they should wear when they arrive.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
By creating the Dress for the Weather project you will learn:
How weather data can be stored in text files
How to manipulate JSON files and objects
How to use Python to access open data APIs
How to manipulate dictionaries in Python
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
