https://www.hackster.io/motea-marius/diy-complete-philips-hue-home-automation-dacb12?ref=channel&ref_id=425_published___&offset=0 This project looks like a very interesting home automation IoT project that provides tools for many applications: This project emulates a Philips Hue Bridge that is able to control Hue lights (using original Hue Bridge), IKEA Tradfri lights (usign Tradfri Bridge), Mi-Light bulbs (using MiLight Hub), Neopixel strips (WS2812B and SK6812) and any cheep

Visual Development with XOD

https://hackaday.com/2017/08/13/visual-development-with-xod/ This looks interesting:  If you program microcontrollers like the Arduino, you should check out XOD and see how you like visually creating software. The software is open source and currently, can target the Arduino or Raspberry Pi. Some alternative visual programming tools: – LabVIEW RT or Matlab Simulink – both very powerful, very stable, closed source

No coding required: Node-RED on a Raspberry Pi | Opensource.com

https://opensource.com/article/17/7/nodered-raspberrypi-hardware?sc_cid=7016000000127ECAAY Node-RED is an easy-to-use programming tool that can be used for handling IoT signals. This article shows that Node-RED can also be used to quickly integrate and test hardware devices. As you can see from this tutorial, connecting and testing a cellular mode with Raspberry Pi using Node-RED required no coding at all. For more information about

The State of Boards: Small, Simple Hardware Rules | Make

http://makezine.com/2017/06/27/state-boards-platforms-products-purposes-current-crop-microcontrollers-vies-attention/ Over the last few years, we’ve seen a huge growth in the number and variety of both microcontroller boards and single-board computers.  The modern era, defined by microcontrollers becoming conveniently packaged on boards, began with the Arduino. The “classic” Arduino layout, including the irritating, irregular offset between pins 7 and 8, has become a standard. Similarly,

Scratch 2.0: all-new features for your Raspberry Pi

https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/scratch-2-raspberry-pi/ Scratch 2.0 is now available as an offline app for the Raspberry Pi! This new version of Scratch allows you to control the Pi’s GPIO (General Purpose Input and Output) pins, and offers a host of other exciting new features. As with Scratch 1.4, Scratch 2.0 on the Raspberry Pi allows you to create code to
