Make Your Own Imgur Upvote Meter

Or, An Absolute Beginner’s Electronics Project Kit

Thanks to Jarek for sharing his neat Imgur Upvote Meter with us! Check out the full tutorial here.

Or, An Absolute Beginner’s Electronics Project Kit

I got a ton of messages about http://imgur.com/a/RtQPl, so I made this tutorial to guide you through making your own Imgur Upvote Meter. IMO the best way to learn about something is to work on a project.

Don’t let the length of this tutorial throw you; I was just very detailed in my approach 🙂 This project needs no tools or special setup, and can be finished in about an hour or two.

Microsoft Azure IoT Starter Kit w/ Adafruit Feather HUZZAH: In collaboration with Microsoft, Adafruit’s releasing IoT Starter Kits with boards, sensors, and components that are ‘Azure Certified for IoT.’

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud solution for IoT projects that’s a comprehensive and flexible program from the Microsoft team that they’re extending into the open source hardware world. This starter kit includes a pre-soldered Adafruit Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266 WiFi and some sensors and components to get you started on your IoT journey.

Feather is a development board from Adafruit that, like its namesake, is thin, light and lets you fly. We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.

This starter kit contains the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 – our take on an ‘all-in-one’ ESP8266 WiFi development board with built in USB and battery charging. Its an ESP8266 WiFi module with all the extras you need, ready to rock! Read more.


Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
