Make: 57 ! #MakeV57
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/05/08/limor-ladyada-fried-on-the-cover-of-make-magazine-makev57/

Thank you to the team at Make: Juliann Brown, Hep Svadja, Gareth Branwyn and everyone else who worked on this volume of Make: 57 and thank you to the Adafruit team that set up, helped and was part of the article and photoshoot and the entire team for making Adafruit, Adafruit.

Most of all, thank you to the community of makers out there who have supported Adafruit over the last 10 years.

Make: 57 is available for subscribers this week or so, on stands and more. Subscribe to Make: here. We’ll try to stock it in the Adafruit store if that’s possible too!

Make: Volume 57 is our annual boards blowout, an examination of the latest from the world of microcontrollers and single-board computers. These prototyping devices are more powerful than ever, with the latest crop now capable of machine-learning tasks such as instantly identifying objects and driving autonomous vehicles. Meanwhile, new board ecosystems have started popping up, giving makers some great alternatives to the venerable classics. Our boards guide insert will help readers figure out what is right for their project. The issue also includes profiles of notable people and companies in this space, with a large feature on Limor Fried, Adafruit’s pioneering open-source engineer/CEO. And, as always, a range of projects to keep you busy in your workshops and makerspaces.

Raspberry PI Zero Garage Door Opener #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/07/28/raspberry-pi-zero-garage-door-opener-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Here is a cool project that uses a Raspberry Pi and the phone app Blynk to make your own garage door opener! Shared by next_project on Instructables:

Ever lose a garage door opener and looked for a replacement on Amazon? The replacements for my garage door were $20-$30. I figured I’d make one using a $10 pi zero (Ok for like $30 after all accessories) but at least I can use it to control my garage from anywhere I am connected to the internet.

via RaspberryPi.org

When we released the Google AIY Projects kit with Issue 57 of The MagPi in May, we could hardly wait to see what you in the community would build with it. Being able to add voice interaction to your Raspberry Pi projects opens up a world of possibilities for exciting digital making.

Doorbell linked to Slack with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/07/28/doorbell-linked-to-slack-with-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Via ThingKing on Vimeo.

We didn’t like walking down the stairs to check who was at the door, so we made a doorbell that is linked to our Slack. The doorbell takes a photo of the visitor and posts it to our Slack. From our desks or phone, we can respond to the slack message to open the gate. There is also a fingerprint reader on the doorbell that staff can use in order to let themselves in and out.

Raspberry Pi + Flow Sensor Experiment
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/07/28/raspberry-pi-flow-sensor-experiment/

tsbrownie shared this video on Youtube!

An RPi experiment using the YF-S201 flow meter. Good for measuring and controlling water flows – home watering use, irrigation water use tracking, livestock water tanks, etc.

The sensor is inline and uses an impeller with an embedded magnet. The magnet triggers a Hall effect switch sending a pulse at each revolution.

Tips & Tricks & Just a Good Read: ‘Ultimate Guide to Soldering’ by +Pimoroni
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/07/28/tips-tricks-just-a-good-read-ultimate-guide-to-soldering-by-pimoroni/

From ‘blobby solder joints’ and ‘wonky’ pins to finishing touches, Pimoroni have an excellent ‘Ultimate Guide to Soldering‘ written by their own head of digital content Sandy Macdonald. They use a Raspberry Pi Zero W to demonstrate many of the proper procedures and pitfalls of soldering – such as bridged connections or solder blobs. Since the Zero W typically requires two long rows of header pins to solder it’s a good device for you to test your skills and proficiency with the iron on. (When you have to focus on soldering 40 pins you can really get in a groove, and also see where your shortcomings are.)

Getting started with Digital Making on the Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/07/28/getting-started-with-digital-making-on-the-raspberry-pi-raspberry_pi-piday-raspberrypi/

Super helpful new piece from Michael Horne up on his blog Raspberry Pi Pod.

Digital making is, essentially, making stuff with digital components. If you’ve got a Raspberry Pi, you’ve already got one of those components – the controller board. So, you’ve got it up-and-running… but what now?

On this page, I want to introduce you to various aspects of digital making, including the basics of software and hardware and some of the essential skills that you will need to learn to get the most out of your device, and to enter the world of digital making.
