Microbit Blog

Contributions now Online

There’s still some to go but the main bits of the website are now up. Most of the repositories are online and are up for contributions.

There are four main sections now online, each found in the navbar above:

Each webpage page in each section is made from .md files in github repositories. You can add files to the repositories and they’ll show up on the website.

Add your details to the author repository for your contribution to be recorded on the site.

There’s more information about contributing in the README.md of each repository and there’s an overview on the contributing page.

Fixing the Website

Christmas Holidays and I’ve had time to put the updated websit online. I’ve tried to add how to do most of the things I’ve been asked.

A few other things I’m keen to add or update:

The website started off as a collection of python programs collected from github. I’ve added how to use components and how to do stuff like datalogging or using visual basic. Hopefully it’s more useful.

I’ll also start sending out the mailing list. The sign up form is here.
