    WS2812 - FastLED sample project

    WS2812 - FastLED sample project

    To make FastLED work with an array of WS2812 LEDs, there are five basic pieces that Padre discusses with Mark "Smitty" Smith

    Quick Notes:
    The power regulator on an Arduino can provide ~500ma if you're giving it at least 7v of powerIf you're powering it from USB, it's closer to 400maEach LED can pull UP TO 60ma (20ma per color)If you're going to power a long strand of LEDs, you want to use an external power source.

Rumpletoe ,

Good show - but tell me this...

Please tell me more about a new language you propose to delve into before actually writing a line of code. Why might I want to devote time to learning Python? Show me the results of a few examples that do more than just adding two numbers and maybe also show a quick scan of the source code for that demo. (e.g. Maybe scrape a web page and display a result.) I want a quick feel for the language first.

Coding 101 has great potential. @padresj amd @snubs personalities are excellent for this show!

I love this show it's podcast, it's awesome!

I just want to say I live the podcast and feel that it's great for those who are not tech savvy from the get go. I have tried to find goo material that wasn't to advanced and now I have found my beginning in program with your podcast. Keep up the good work and I look forward to the new episodes.

Great show for beginner coders.

Just got a raspberry pi and the python series is perfect timing! Hosts are great also.
