Last night we had a group of makers who were excited to learn about the possibilities of the Raspberry Pi with the GPIO. We started with a quick look at some of the many roles that the Raspberry Pi can take, from the core of your next project to powering your downtime as a games console.
With the possibilities discussed it was time to move onto making some electronics with the Raspberry Pi. We used Python to program an LED light that we were able to switch on and off with a button and control the brightness level of.
If you want to expand your skills as a maker into new areas, come along to one of our Community Workshops, or if you're not in the Newcastle area, join in the fun with our Online Courses and Tutorials.
