Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing part 1 of a series on building an internet ‘thing’ with the Raspberry Pi. Dives into creating a simple Python flask web application to turn on/off a LED and read a switch.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing how to setup netconnectd (https://github.com/foosel/netconnectd) to turn a Raspberry Pi 3 into an internet thing ‘appliance’ that can host its own WiFi network for easy configuration.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit with part 2 of the Raspberry Pi internet ‘thing’ project. This video looks at making a nicer looking webpage with Bootstrap, and how to receive realtime updates from the switch using HTML5 server sent events.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit of building a Trellis-based box to switch scenes in Wirecast. Good example of using an Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32u4) to send keyboard presses and control a program on the computer.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing part 3 of the Raspberry Pi & Python Internet ‘Thing’ series. In this episode we add a DHT temperature & humidity sensor to the Pi and have it dynamically render its data in a chart on the webpage.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit of building (and troubleshooting) a breadboard Arduino for Arduino Day! Note: One of the cameras died during the stream and there’s a little bit of lost audio for a few minutes. After ~2 minutes audio is back and good for the stream.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing the AlexaPi tool (https://github.com/sammachin/AlexaPi) to turn a Raspberry Pi Zero into an Amazon Echo-like device. Ask the Pi questions and Amazon’s Alexa voice service will respond with answers!
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit with the thrilling conclusion of the Pi internet ‘thing’ series! In this video we use Socket IO to do real time updates from the server to the web page and vice-versa.
Periscope style ‘live’ stream recorded at Emerald City Comicon http://www.emeraldcitycomicon.com/ in Seattle, WA, on Friday 4/8. Take a walk through the show floor soaking in the sights and sounds of a busy Comicon.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit on using MicroPython (http://www.micropython.org) with the Feather Huzzah ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller. Looks at how to compile and load MicroPython on the board, and a sneak peak at in development features like a web control console!
