Raspberry Pi Roundup - 29th January 2016

Fading LEDs

Here's an article I wrote over on my blog in which I use GPIO Zero and multi-threading to fade LEDs in and out using PWM from a Raspberry Pi Zero. This was in preparation for the Bett education conference (where it performed very well!) Read it here.

Zero production

More Raspberry Pi Zeros are in production at the Sony factory in Pencoed, Wales according to a tweet from @Raspberry_Pi this afternoon. Here's a picture to prove it!

We hope to release some Raspberry Pi Zeros for sale on Monday!

Sonic Pi / Minecraft

The MagPi have published a tutorial that Sam Aaron, creator of Sonic Pi, wrote about live coding with his software. This tutorial has a twist, however, as it integrates with Minecraft: Pi Edition and allows you to build in the 3D world based on input from the musical environment of Sonic Pi. Well worth a look at if you want to captivate people with your creations. Read it here.
