I finally got around to plugging some basic electronics into the GPIO pins on the back of the Raspberry Pi 400 i got
I used both Scratch and Python to get my LED to flash
Things I’ve learned:
- My eyes are getting worse! It’s real tricky to see where you’re plugging the wires in
- double check the pin diagram n the book. For ages I was working with the wrong pins!
- you really do need a resistor before plugging in the led! I burnt one out already without one!
