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!
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit with part 1 in a series on how to talk to WiFi boards like the Feather Huzzah ESP8266 from a Raspberry Pi. This stream goes through a few very useful utilities that can make receiving data from a WiFi board easy.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit as a followup to explore more capabilities in the current MicroPython ESP8266 firmware. Look at how to control neopixels, dim and LED, and connect to WiFi all with MicroPython code!
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing updated Python software libraries that now support Python 3 for the Raspberry Pi and other small Linux computers. Looks at a few common issues you can run into when porting code to Python 3 and how to overcome them.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing pt. 2 in the Raspberry Pi Talking to WiFi ‘Things’ series. This video follows pt. 1 and shows how to have a Raspberry Pi send simple commands to turn on/off a LED connected to a Feather Huzzah ESP8266 board.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit looking at the open source DIY home automation hub http://home-assistant.io/ on a Raspberry Pi. Explores how to install and run Home Assistant on a Pi and configure it to talk to smart home gadgets like switches and light bulbs. Also highlights interesting possibilities for integrating Arduino and Raspberry Pi-based sensors and automation with Home Assistant.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing off how to use Circuit Playground Firmata to control Circuit Playground with Python and other high level languages on your computer. Shows how to load the Firmata sketch on Circuit Playground and run example Python code.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing the 3rd part in the series on Raspberry Pi talking to WiFi ‘things. Looks at how to have a Pi toggle a LED on an ESP8266 and vice-versa with Python socket code.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit looking at PiShift (https://github.com/tomhartley/piShift) on a Raspberry Pi Zero. PiShift makes the Pi Zero appear as a USB drive which you can drag Python code files onto to run. This video shows how to setup and try PiShift.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit exploring analog sensors on the Circuit Playground board. Looks at how to read analog sensors like temperature & light sensors and turn them into color and sound.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing the 4th part in the series on Raspberry Pi talking to WiFi ‘things’. Looks at how to use MQTT to toggle LEDs on the Raspberry Pi & an ESP8266 board.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing a Raspberry Pi 3 running the 0.5 Chromium OS for single board computers release (http://www.chromiumosforsbc.org/install/). Turn a Pi into a Chromebook/chromebox with this excellent open source software!
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing how to turn Circuit Playground into a wearable sound reactive LED volume meter. Goes through how to port the Ampli-tie project to Circuit Playground and turn microphone measurements into volume levels to light pixels.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing how to store basic data like program state or sensor readings on a Raspberry Pi with Python. Looks at storing and loading data with Python’s pickle module, configparser INI files, and CSV format files.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing a quick look at running the Arduino IDE on the Raspberry Pi. Shows how to install Arduino in the Pi desktop and use it to program different Arduino boards.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit looking at how to use the SQLite database to store simple sensor readings and configure program state. Explores how to use SQLite tools and execute queries from Python.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit practicing a 5 minute lightning talk for PyCon on Python & hardware.
Live stream to http://twitch.tv/adafruit showing pt. 2 in the SQLite sensor storage series. Looks at how to use the Peewee ORM library to greatly simplify talking to a SQLite database.
