We use Slack all the time at Pi Towers. Granted, we often use it for sharing animated cat GIFs and the latest hacks for the office coffee machine, but we are definitely big fans.
Imagine our delight, then, when we heard about a Slack client for the Commodore 64 (another long-standing flame of ours). Our love for the C64 knows few bounds: along with the Sinclair Spectrum and the BBC Micro, it gave many of us here at the Raspberry Pi Foundation a coding kick-start.
The only thing that could make this better is the Raspberry Pi. And guess what’s sitting slap-bang in the middle between Slack and the C64? Only our favourite single-board computer.
This amazing trinity of tech brings our favourite things together for a text messaging party. We just had to figure out how it worked.
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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
