We’re excited to announce balenaHub: find and deploy ready-made edge and IoT projects made by product builders like you, or share your own app with the world. Try it out!
From the lab, we show educators how to set up a Scratch server on a Raspberry Pi, and introduce AI-driven audio analysis using Coral and balena. We also took a deep look at the networking features of balenaFin.
Check out our holiday gift guide if you need ideas and see some interesting balena community spotlights below. Happy holidays, everyone.

You can use
Deploy with balena to also deploy a specific branch of a project with different configurations. This can be very handy when debugging your application or developing new features.
To deploy a project from a specific branch using a customized
balena.yml, use the following url structure:
https://dashboard.balena-cloud.com/deploy?tarballUrl=<repo url>/archive/<branch name>.tar.gz&repoUrl=<repo url>&configUrl=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/<org>/<repo name>/<branch name>/balena.yml
You can read more about the options used above in our docs.
