Hot Pi

Today the first couple of things showed up for my air quality monitor. Shame they’re the boring bits… we’ve all seen a raspi zero before. Except of course the WH variant was sold out everywhere I looked, so I ended up with a plain W and a separate header to solder on by myself. Good thing SparkCC is open tonight!

This wouldn’t have been the first time I’ve been so uncoordinated I destroyed something with a soldering iron.

Apparently tonight wasn’t destruction night though, so now I have a zero with a header attached and it actually works. It’s… not the prettiest thing in the world though. And without the SD card or the sensors, it’s not much of a monitoring station yet.

One step at a time?
