The best tools to make your project dreams come true
Digi-Key and Adafruit have teamed up to offer a live question and answer session on Discord.
Adafruit’s Metro M0 Express board is the first Metro board designed for use with CircuitPython.
On their own, micro:bits are both entertaining and useful for prototyping. Adding another micro:bit makes it possible for you to start making wireless projects. In this how-to article, we show you how to control one micro:bit by using a second micro:bit wirelessly!
