LoveByte’s Tiny Code Christmas is an event to help you take your first steps in demoscene sizecoding with Lua based fantasy consoles like TIC-80 and PICO-8! Over 12 days, from the 12th to the 23rd of December, learn the effects and techniques used in Byte Jams, Byte Battles, and Tiny Intros!
Join us for 12 days of tiny challenges to gradually introduce you to size coding and effects! A new video will be released each day to introduce a new concept and outline the challenge.
A little bit of programming knowledge will help but you don’t need a lot. The challenges will introduce demoscene concepts without jargon so it is friendly for newcomers to the scene! Tell your friends!

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

So lovely to give us a shout-out! 💖
If anyone thinks this might be their thing, don’t be discouraged by Christmas being around the corner. There is no strict schedule, both the videos and tutorial pages of the 12 days of tiny code will stay online. It’s never too late to start!
There is always the Discord if you need help, and the Lovebyte accounts on Twitter and Mastodon will keep a keen eye on the #lovebyte hashtag to spot the cool things everyone is creating.
