NEW GUIDE: Raspberry Pi Stock Alert Alarm @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #raspberrypi
Hunting for a Raspberry Pi? This Learn Guide shows you how to build this project to help — it uses a Feather board over WiFi to check for in-stock alerts at Adafruit and then raises the alarm when there are RPi boards available!
This project uses a Feather ESP32-S2 TFT (hey, it would be pretty mean if we made this project using a Raspi!) to check the rpilocator.com Twitter feed, searching for new Tweets with the keyword “Adafruit”. When it finds one, that means there is most likely a fresh batch for sale. This info is displayed on the TFT (including which model of RPi it is), and even better, a bright red spinning light and siren goes off to get your attention!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
