To celebrate the sale of their ten millionth Raspberry Pi, the Raspberry Pi Foundation for the first time has put together their own idea of what the perfect bundle would look like, creating the official Raspberry Pi Starter Kit.
This kit provides you with a keyboard, mouse, power supply, Pi enclosure, HDMI cable, and an SD card with the necessary operating system out of which you can operate. Great for setting you on the path to building your own computer — all you’d need to wrap it up is an HDMI monitor or television!
A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
An 8GB NOOBS SD card
An official case
An official 2.5A multi-region power supply
An official 1m HDMI cable
An optical mouse and a keyboard with high-quality scissor-switch action
The Pi Foundation has called this an “unashamedly premium” product: the latest Raspberry Pi, official accessories, the best USB peripherals we could find, and a copy of the highest-rated Raspberry Pi book. It doesn’t get any more official than that!
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.
