New Christmas-themed resources from the Raspberry Pi Foundation

Scary carol singers

Raspberry Pi’s Laura Sach has just announced that there are some new Christmas-themed resources available to get you into the festive spirit. I know, I know, it’s still November, but anyway!

The first project is in Scratch and shows you how to build a memory game using Christmas jumpers. Take a look at that one here.

The second uses a SenseHAT to create an advent calendar with lights you can ‘open’ each day using the Pi’s clock to control access. Take a look here. (Obviously, this will only be worthwhile from Friday onwards!)

The next project teaches you how to use Sonic Pi through coding the Twelve Days of Christmas carol. For this project, visit this page.

The last project is a bit more involved on the coding front and uses Python to help you to analyse a Twitter account for tweets made in the last year. By training a ‘classifier’, you can work out if the person who owns the account has been naughty or nice! Take a look here.
