Quotes! Who doesn't love good quotes? But who's to decide which quotes are "good"? Well, you are, of course!

Now, you can create your own quote board and supply the quotes for it yourself! No need to rely on a website and some other person's curatorial tastes.

With this project, you'll create a custom quote feed right on Adafruit IO, then code your CircuitPython-powered WiFi RGB LED matrix to display your quotes in random order.
