Cambridge University Press - Coding Club Python Programming Art Supplement 1 (Python Prog Art Suppl 1)
Description:

Answers and full source code are found in the resources page.

Python: Programming Art provides more material at level 1 for those readers who are enjoying their coding at this level but are not quite ready to move on to the next level.

In this book you learn how to use Python's popular turtle module to draw some fantastic art really quickly and in the second half of the book build an awesome art app that is not a paint program or a drawing app but something quite unique and different.

More importantly, by the end of the book, you should be able to write your own short programs and be able to fully customise your art apps into a new app that is truly your own.



Chapter 1

Ch.1 - Introducing turtle
In this Chapter you will learn how to:

   >>> import the turtle module
   >>> make your turtle move around in all directions
   >>> change what the turtle looks like.

Cambridge University Press - Black Flag: A Coding Club Mission (book black flag)
Description:

Welcome to Black Flag: A Coding Club Mission

In Marshall Trent’s Reunited Kingdom every citizen of New Edgehill has a neurochip implanted within them that links directly to the Neuralnet.

The Neuralnet sees and records every thought, movement and microscopic detail of every life in New Edgehill. Absolute control!

Cal Jones believes he is no different from everyone else. That is until he saves the life of Sasha and learns that everything that he thought was true is in fact a lie. He discovers an underground group, the Anarchists, living outside of the Neuralnet and harbouring a secret which will change his life forever.

Matt Langley has written a fantastic, imaginative and exciting novel for the Coding Club series. You can even read the first Chapter now: http://codingclub.co.uk/uploaded_pdfs/BlackFlag_sample.pdf

Join Danni as you train as an Anarchist


This is a Coding Club mission. This means that you can get far more involved in this book than any other you have read before – should you wish to. To register for free, all you need to do is enter an activation code and fill in a short form. Unfortunately we cannot just leave activation codes in plain view. You will have to visit the Black Flag website and think like a true hacker – ignore the visuals and dig into the code!

I will guide you throughout your training as an Anarchist agent. You will solve many of the assignments that Cal, Sasha and I face in our struggle. Do not worry if you are still a novice programmer, there is lots of guidance and hints along the way.

All the preparation that is necessary is that you have worked through Coding Club: Python Basics. Alternatively you should be fine if you have learnt a little Python 3 some other way. You simply need to have a grasp of how to write variables and functions, perform simple maths operations and manipulate strings. You should also know how to save and load files in IDLE.

It is not going to be easy, but trying to save the World never is!

Get Started with MicroPython on Raspberry Pi Pico (book micropython pico)
What is MicroPython?

MicroPython is a full implementation of the Python 3 programming language that runs directly on embedded hardware like Raspberry Pi Pico. You get an interactive prompt (the REPL) to execute commands immediately via USB Serial, and a built-in filesystem. The Pico port of MicroPython includes modules for accessing low-level chip-specific hardware.

What is Raspberry Pi Pico?
Raspberry Pi Pico, a microcontroller board built on silicon designed here at Raspberry Pi.




Your official guide

Microcontrollers, like RP2040 at the heart of Raspberry PiPico, are computers stripped back to their bare essentials. You don’t use monitors or keyboards, but program them to take their input from, and send their output to the input/output pins. Using these programmable connections, you can light lights, make noises, send text to screens, and much more. In Get Started with MicroPython on Raspberry Pi Pico, you will learn how to use the beginner-friendly language MicroPython to write programs and connect up hardware to make your Raspberry Pi Pico interact with the world around it. Using these skills, you can create your own electro‑mechanical projects, whether for fun or to make your life easier.

Build a simple reaction timing game using an LED and push-buttons, for one or two players

Chapter 7: Burglar alarm
Use a motion sensor to detect intruders and sound the alarm with a flashing light and siren

Chapter 8: Temperature gauge
Use your Raspberry Pi Pico’s built-in ADC to convert analogue inputs, and read its internal temperature sensor

Chapter 9: Data logger
Turn Raspberry Pi Pico into a temperature data-logging device and untether it from the computer to make it fully portable
