Last week, Raspberry Pi released the Pico W - a $6 microcontroller board with internet access, that speaks Python. And starting today, you can connect your Pico W to the Uplink!
We’ve released a firmware image for the Pico W that connects to the Anvil Uplink, with proper security built in. Just install it, save your Python code to the Pico’s USB drive, and your little microcontroller will talk to your Anvil app!
We have also released a series of tutorials and documentation, so you can learn all about how to use the Pico W with Anvil. Check them out here:
When you install the Anvil firmware image, your Pico W will show up as a drive on your computer, with sample Python code already present. Open it up, set your WiFi network’s name and password, add your app’s Uplink key, and reboot: Your Pico W will now connect to your app, and you can call functions on your Pico from a web UI with the new
So, go forth and create lots of weird and wonderful IoT devices with Anvil - and don’t forget to post your projects in the Show & Tell forum!
