Happy Birthday Raspberry Pi! Here’s Our Tutorial Toast To You #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi
In honor of the Raspberry Pi’s big birthday weekend, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite pi-centric tutorials from over the last year from our Adafruit Learning System.
Keep in mind, these are only a few of the many pi guides we offer. To see more, go here!
Adafruit Arcade Bonnet for Raspberry Pi: Playing retro games is easy on a Raspberry Pi – and the pocket computer is pretty good at it too! All you need is a little help to connect buttons and a joystick up and you can custom design your own arcade console, desktop or stand-up machine, even just a simple controller box. It makes for a fun weekend project that will last all year. (read full guide here)
In this project, we’ll replace chemical film with more modern electronic parts: a Raspberry Pi computer and camera paired with a diminutive thermal printer, all working off a battery. Press a button, get a print! (read full guide here)
I decided to create this project so I could share my favorite digital magazines and projects with my neighborhood. Hopefully this will get others interested in electronics by showing them stuff they might not have know about.
We will be using a Raspberry Pi Zero and a WiFi adapter to create a hotspot that others can connect to and browse the digital books offered. (read full guide here)
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
