UPDATED GUIDE: Adafruit IO Basics: Temperature and Humidity #AdafruitLearningSystem @adafruit
Phew, it’s sweltering in NYC right now. One of the best (and most popular) projects to get started with Adafruit IO is a DHT-sensor-based temperature and humidity logger. Place one in your apartment and check it on an Adafruit IO dashboard throughout the day to make sure your kids/pets/plants are okay. We previously only had code for the ESP8266 and SAMD platforms. Until now!
An update has been made to the popular Adafruit IO Basics Basics: Temperature and Humidity guide to add code, wiring, and setup for the Raspberry Pi. We’ll walk through wiring a DHT22 to the Raspberry Pi and interfacing our DHT-Python library with Adafruit IO so you can track the weather and temperature of your apartment – from anywhere!
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.
