Quest: write a project tutorial, reward: Pixelblaze hardware!

The wizard tower seeks Pixelblaze project tutorials!

As a reward for any tutorial meeting the requirements, the author will get a Pixelblaze Pico!

On top of that, at the end of the quest period, entries will be judged by a panel of judges and a winner among winners will be selected for the prized, prestigious, perfect pixely Pixelblaze Cube (seen here, or here, or here)!

The nature of the project itself is open, no project will be turned down as long as it’s powered by Pixelblaze. Projects old and new are welcome alike.

Quest to remain open until September 15th.

:rofl: spectacular catch there!

I’ve finally tore myself away from my mad science long enough to write a tutorial that hopefully fulfills the requirements of this quest!
