Light sculpture multi-mode LED strip lamp

by wp_lamps on Thu Dec 10, 2020 4:16 pm

Hello,
My first project coding, making NeoPixel strips light up. I would like to use maker.makecode.com to play and learn, but I got a Adafruit QT Py controller. I do not see it available as an option in MakeCode. Is there another board I could chose to work on my program? Thank you.

That's a great project for learning coding in MakeCode. The Trinket M0 or Gemma M0 are the boards that are probably the most similar to the QT Py and is currently available in Maker.makecode. Gemma is neat because you can get alligator clip NeoPixel strips to connect to it very easily.
