https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/24/9-year-olds-raspberry-pi-website-piday/

Don’t Pass the Raspberry Jam is a how-to Raspberry Pi website created by 9 year olf Aoibheann Mangan from Caounty Mayo in Ireland. It’s fantastic. — via Raspberry Pi Pod

9-year old Aoibheann Mangan from County Mayo in Ireland has created a lovely website with tips for how to get going with your Raspberry Pi and some great features on theCamJam EduKit and Picademy, which her mum, a primary school teacher, attended in Leeds.

Razzmaster Configures Raspberry Pi Over the Network (And It’s Free!) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/24/razzmaster-configures-raspberry-pi-over-the-network-and-its-free-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Via PubNub

PubNub is a startup, and like many startups we use a lot of open source software. We are also huge fans of the Raspberry Pi. We’ve even built a Pi workshop because it’s so flexible and easy to get started with. Setting up Raspberry Pis for workshops and projects can be a pain, though, especially if you have a lot of them to set up. To address this I created a small open source tool called Razzmaster which lets you find and configure Raspberry Pis over a local network, even if you don’t know the IP address.

NEW PRODUCT - LED Charlieplexed Matrix - 9x16 LEDs - Warm White
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3162

These are 9x16 Charlieplexed LEDs designed to match with the Adafruit 16x9 Charlieplexed PWM LED Matrix Driver - IS31FL3731. You don't get any resistors or driver chips with this grid, its just a mess of LEDs in a charlieplexed arrangement

This is the Warm White version.

In stock and shipping now!

How to Draw a Spider Chart with Python #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/24/how-to-draw-a-spider-chart-with-python-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

From Winkleink – box of wires via raspberry pi pod:

A few days ago a call went on out on Twitter for how to make lots of Spider Charts, also known as Radar charts in a programmatic way. I decided to take up the challenge.

The code and associated files are available to download from GitHub…

…The program is written using Python and Pygame and was developed on the Raspberry Pi.
Since it doesn’t use any other external libraries I’d expect it to work on other systems with Pygame installed.

NEW PRODUCT - Adafruit 15x7 CharliePlex LED Matrix FeatherWing - Warm White
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3163

You wont be able to look away from the mesmerizing patterns created by this Adafruit 15x7 CharliePlex LED Matrix Display FeatherWing. This 15x7 LED display can be paired with any of our Feather boards for a beautiful, bright grid of 105 charlieplexed LEDs. It even comes with a built-in charlieplex driver that is run over I2C.

We carry these FeatherWings in many vivid colors - this is the Warm White matrix.

What is particularly nice about this Wing is the I2C LED driver chip has the ability to PWM each individual LED in a 15x7 grid so you can have beautiful LED lighting effects, without a lot of pin twiddling. Simply tell the chip which LED on the grid you want lit, and what brightness and it's all taken care of for you. You get 8-bit (256 level) dimming for each individual LED.

The IS31FL3731 is a nice little chip - and it runs happily over 3.3V power. Inside is enough RAM for 8 separate frames of display memory so you can set up multiple frames of an animation and flip them to be displayed with a single command. Since it uses I2C, it takes up only the SDA/SCL pins on your Feather and can share those pins with other I2C devices and sensors.

In stock and shipping now!

Pan/Tilt Solar Tracker Powered by #Arduino Mega Doubles as Online Energy Monitor via ESP8266
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/23/pantilt-solar-tracker-powered-by-arduino-mega-doubles-as-online-energy-monitor-via-esp8266/

The features of this solar tracker are:

Solar tracking: making sure the solar panels are aligned to the sun as long as possible.

Energy monitor: This measures the voltage and the current generated by the panels and calculates the generated Power and Energy.

Data logging: this sends the data from the energy monitor into the cloud of ThingSpeak.

Also there is an LCD to display the values of the energy monitor
In this instructable are technical drawings of the project included.

And at step 10 there is a link to the complete project report and presentation.
