Read analog sensors with the MCP3008 and GPIO Zero on the Raspberry Pi

Alex Eames recently announced a new reward level for his RasPiO Pro Hat Kickstarter – it includes an MCP3008 analog-to-digital chip and an analog temperature sensor (TMP36). Alex has now written a tutorial to show you how to use the chip and sensor to display temperature readings. The tutorial features the use of the GPIO Zero library and I think this is the first practical example of the MCP3008 functionality I’ve seen, so it’s well worth taking a look. Read the tutorial and see the code here.
