Month of Making

This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series Month of Making

March is all about MAKING!!

I have decided to take on the challenge of making a 5-minute micro:bit make every day throughout March.

Day01 – Hello World and More

In tradition, I decided to create a Hello World program. When learning a new programming language this will typically be the first program you learn to create, but this literally takes about a minute with a micro:bit. So I have decided to integrate the buttons and display some images too.

Python Code

from microbit import *
display.show(Image.HAPPY)
while True:
if button_a.is_pressed():
display.scroll("Hello World")
elif button_b.is_pressed():
display.show(Image.HEART)
