Geany Build for Python3

By default, Geany will run programs in Python 2.x. As this is now obsolete, you need to edit the build commands so it points to python3.

This will allow you to run (execute) your code.

Code Club 6/1/2024 Write up

So we had a busy session today, the Viglen PC I took down is now tested and working, we just need to put it all back together fully.

The Motherboard we had in the STEM cupboard is also now tested and working, so we need a case for this so we can put it all together, install an OS and start using it.

We also had a look at a DIY F1 car project that one of the attendees wants to try and build. We need a few more parts for this, but with help, the project is doable.

Also did the more coding, in Scratch and Python.

Raspberry Pi Xmas tree

I was sent a Raspberry Pi xmas tree module last year and have just got round to setting it up. Results with some example code (below) seem pretty good. Most of the LEDs work.

from gpiozero import LEDBoard
from gpiozero.tools import random_values
from signal import pause
tree = LEDBoard(*range(2,28),pwm=True)
for led in tree:
 led.source_delay = 0.1
 led.source = random_values()
pause()

We had a busy session today. As you can see from the photo, we did more work on the netbooks.

code club november 2023

We were also doing more Scratch and some HTML / CSS.

I have added more links below to try and reflect our current set of activities.

I was also helping another attendee with electronics, even though I think what he wants to do is a little complex for the resources available and requires more engineering and or electronics knowledge.

As well as the above, Helen from the STEM group was working on getting the line following robot working and also getting the Lego WeDo working, so we now have a small Lego robot that can detect obstacles, as well as a basic Lego Windmill, which we can look at this during the next STEM group meeting on the 9th December.

Another busy session today, stared off taking a netbook apart to remove the fan, so that we could use it to replace a faulty fan in another netbook. This all went fine, we now have more spare parts in the box.

We also installed windows on 2 netbooks, had a go at installing FreeBSD but got stuck, this is one thing I am not too sure on, we ended up on an installer screen asking about RAID devices.

I also got to do some electronics, and have identified some more resources I need for the next session.

We also had a new attendee who may be able to bring some friends on the 25th. So all good stuff.

We are trying to find out if we can still download an older ISO file for Xebian 2022. The website just has xebian 2023.

I have added more links below to try and reflect our current set of activities.

The next Paignton Library code club is an extra session on Saturday 25th November 2023, 10 am to 12:00. We will carry on with coding, help new attendee, and do more work on the netbooks.

We may look at FreeBSD, and Ventroy or at least figure out which ISO we would like a multi-boot installer for.

I have added more links below to try and reflect our current set of activities.
