To help beginners get started with Raspberry Pi Pico quickly, we are releasing the Starter Guide of Raspberry Pi Pico Based on MicroPython. Through four chapters and a total of 16 lessons of study, this course can help you get started with Raspberry Pi Pico easily. With its help, you can learn MicroPython from scratch, and build some interesting projects.

It is not required to have knowledge of MicroPython programming or electronics to begin. The course will take you through learning this knowledge step by step, and quickly put it into practice in each project.

It’s GIVEAWAY time! In late May, we have released the RP2040 Microcontrollers including a module and a dev board based on Raspberry Pi RP2040 chip. Currently, we’re manufacturing the first batch of the series with the expected shipping date in early July.

If you want the chance to win a free Wio RP2040 Module or a Wio RP2040 Dev Board, simply do the following two easy steps (we have 5 of each to give away):

1) Follow us on LinkedIn for future chances to win if you do not win this time.

Starting Machine Learning with Wio RP2040 board

Train and deploy a simple neural network for classifying paper-rock gestures with just a single light sensor. Let’s see how to get Wio RP2040 mini Dev Board started with Machine learning at the very edge!

Like many of us during Covid-19, Benjamin Cabé was baking sourdough bread but he was at home in France. He wondered how he might tell if his dough was done proofing. He began working on an artificial nose that uses physical sensors to detect gas but also uses machine learning to identify the smell. His project is on the cover of Make: Volume 77. In this conversation, Make team and Benjamin talk about how his nose works, how it knows what it does and the limits of what it knows.
by Antonio Ruiz 
Antonio Ruiz developed a solar-powered sensing device, able to determine and track key environmental parameters in real-time.

The LCD screen on the Wio Terminal, not only allowed a display of the results but it could also be used to show in a map the position where the different measurements had been taken. To power this project, Antonio Ruiz employed a solar panel and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, that could be connected with the Wio Terminal.
