Total nub, want to learn

by Maineiac on Sun Jun 14, 2020 9:22 am

Hi all,
I'm a total nub to Adafruit and Circuitpython, but I want to learn. My goal right now is to educate myself on how to program custom .bmp images to display using a Feather M4 Express board and LCD/OLED diplays, primarily for cosplay purposes. I'm using https://github.com/Breazile/MandoPuter? ... XXjFNOt19s for a Mando costume and introductory point for this endeavor. I've also read https://learn.adafruit.com/creating-sli ... n/overview and https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-fea ... 1/overview to educate myself. I'm assuming the "slide show" tutorial is what I'm looking for to display .bmp files, but what the hell do I know? :)

Does anyone have any additional advice and/or tutorials for a beginner? Am I getting in over my head? I'm computer literate, but I haven't done any programming since my early middle school days using LOGO and DOS :P. I'll be using the Mu editor as well. Thank you so much!

Try and experiment. If you have issues, follow up here with the current state of your code, what it is doing and what you want it to be doing. The Discord is a good place to ask questions too: https://adafru.it/discord
