If you don’t already own a LoRaWAN gateway, or lack coverage in your area, building a single-channel gateway is perfect for diving into LoRaWAN-Land. This guide is also the perfect companion to our new Adafruit LoRa Radio Bonnet – press the middle button to launch the gateway. Statistics about the gateway (and packets received) will show up on the OLED display as new packets are sent from a LoRaWAN device.
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.
