HPR4156: Badger 2040

Hosted by Kevie on 2024-07-08 00:00:00
Download or Listen

Kevie, co-host of TuxJam, contines his series on uses for the Raspberry Pi with a look at the Badger2040 from Pimoroni.

In this episode Kevie shares some thoughts about the Badger 2040, which was purchased for the primary reason of needing a geeky name badge for attending this year's Oggcamp, which will be Kevie's first time being able to attend the event.

For more information about how to use the Badger 2040, take a look at this guide on Pimoroni's website. Before being able to talk to the device you will need to install Thonny on your computer.

Finally a huge thanks to everyone who has left feedback for me via Mastodon; firstly for taking the time to listen and secondly for putting in the effort to reply.

@hpr @kevie When you plug in the badger to you PC, does it show as a USB drive? Can you edit the code directly without thonny?

@norrist @hpr nothing appeared at all for me using Ubuntu, i had hoped that it would connect and act like a drive but it wasn't to be. As it may be treating it as another computer it may work with a PC link style cable but I'm not sure TBH

@ken_fallon @norrist @hpr hehehe I think I may have some connection issues if I try and plug a live badger into a USB slot πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
