Coding

To write and upload program here i used Thonny IDE. You can download from here.

Here i write code in micropython.

There are two files for code. One is a library for OLED display and another is a main code file.

Main code is given below

import machine
import ssd1306
import time

oled = ssd1306.SSD1306_I2C(128, 64, machine.I2C(0))

oled.text("Hello everyone", 0, 0)
oled.show()
time.sleep(2)
oled.text("Welcome to my", 0, 10)
oled.text("channel", 0, 20)
oled.show()
time.sleep(2)
oled.text("Thank You", 0, 30)
oled.show()

Save this code in Raspberry Pi Pico and name it main.py

Now press run button.
