Raspberry Pi Pico Giveaway

In Episode 35, we spoke about the new Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller - a sub-$10 board for experimenting and creating projects.

The Pico offers a custom ARM-based processor, 264KB of RAM, 30 GPIO headers, a USB1.1 controller, on-board push button and support for USB-based mass storage boot. It also comes with on-board MicroPython and C/C++ support!

We're giving away a Pico - along with a micro USB power cable and header strip - to two lucky Nerd Factor 15 listeners!


Congratulations to Matt K and Gaye M, who were our lucky winners!

A prize pack will soon be on its way to both, and we look forward to seeing the projects and experiments they come up with.
