Raspberry Pi

RPI Club lesson 2

In this second lesson, we look to perfect our understanding of how to light LEDs by using loops to get them to switch on and off. We also look into how to use buttons connected to the Pi. You will need: Some LEDs Some breadboard jumper wires resistors for the LEDs again and a push more »

While Loops

While Loops are similar to for loops because they repeat segments of code. However in a for loop, you specify how many times a segment of code should repeat. With a while loop, you need to set the condition to make the code stop repeating the specified segment. Setting the condition is similar to that more »
