Using LEDs

LEDs (light-emitting diodes) are incredibly useful in digital making projects. You can use one to indicate whether a script is running or when an action can take place, or as decoration, and for so much more besides.

Blinking an LED with the help of Raspberry Pi has become a rite of passage for new digital makers: it’s the physical equivalent of the ‘hello world’ program! Therefore, it’s the first thing that the participants in our Picademy training, and many young people in physical computing sessions at coding clubs in our networks, learn how to do.

Follow the steps in our latest How to use video to learn how to control an LED with your Raspberry Pi, and go get making.
