Self-contained lighting effects using a Raspberry Pi Zero and Go

A programming language called ‘Go’ is pretty big news nowadays. Personally, it scares the heck out of me. Sooooo complicated, but what do I know? Some people like it. Tom Mitchell has taken Go and written a great script to communicate with the Pimoroni Scroll pHAT HD mounted on a Raspberry Pi Zero. He’s put a Pimoroni Button Shim in between the two boards to cycle through various modes, brightness and different parameters for the scenes. All-in-all, it creates a very attractive effect, shown above. Instructions on how to use the script can be found on GitHub.
