Maker Advent


Now in its second year, Maker Advent is 24 days of fun with electronics. I cover Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pico, micro:bit, Arduino but most importantly I cover cheap components that are useful.


For 2021 I went with two UK retailers, Pimoroni and The Pi Hut and each day I show off what I bought from them. I didn't tell them I was buying stuff for the videos, I just hit their sites on Black Friday.


2020 was the first Maker Advent and I set myself the challenge of buying £60 of stuff from Aliexpress. It mostly went to plan, some days I had to stretch myself for more items to talk about. But I enjoyed everyday, including Christmas Eve where I accidentally shorted a 9V battery with a solder bridge...oops!
