Using Adafruit.IO with Particle Photon #IoTuesday #AdafruitIO #Particle @Digikey @MakerIO @Particle

Digikey’s project-based site, MakerIO, posted a new guide about using the Particle Photon board with Adafruit IO.

While the Particle Photon “is a very useful prototyping IoT platform”, you won’t be able use it as an IoT device without rolling out your own IoT service or using a paid service such as Azure IoT, AWS IoT, or Google Cloud IoT.

Luckily, adafruit.io is a free Internet-of-Things data and visualization platform (with upgraded and boosted plans available) capable of connecting with your Particle Photon. Digikey’s guide is robust and takes you through the process of connecting your Photon to Adafruit IO – from installing a prebuilt Adafruit IO Particle library to programming an example which can send from your device to Adafruit IO.

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.
