We recently moved offices at work as we have been expanding over the last 12 months, and outgrew our old office. Our new office is fantastic and has its very own Garden Room, where we have a picnic bench, astro-turf flooring and, until recently, two office plants.
However, as with any office there are times where people neglect the simple things and our office plants were the unfortunate victims here. Everybody was under the assumption that somebody else was watering the plants, which sadly was not the case. After a number of weeks without water, one of our office plants died and ended up in the compost heap in the sky but the other was clinging to life, and with some watering has slowly returned to its former glory.
Now when you work for a software development company, if there is an excuse to use something involving tech or code then we often will. Throwing myself into the mix, and my passion for Raspberry Pi, then if I have the excuse to use one at work then I will!
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, 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.
