NEW GUIDE: Reef-Pi – Part 1: Introduction & Configuration @Raspberry_Pi
This is awesome: a new guide in the Adafruit Learning System by Ranjib Dey describing reef-pi. This Raspberry Pi based system controls the entire environment for a saltwater reef aquarium. The detail to the build and the flexibility in construction will want you to make your own or at least base your next centralized controller off Ranjib’s guide. This is the first in a multipart series coming out, there will be more!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
