Pybadge Help!

Hi -

I have been using the Pybadge for some projects and I ran into some issues using the NeoPixel strip. I used John Parks code PyGamer NeoPixel Code, but the strip will not turn on and I am at lost.

I also wonder if it would be possible to use a microphone PyBadge Tensor Flow Mircophone to detect sound using the PyBadge and Makecode Arcade.

I appreciate any help I can get and if this is the best place to post these questions.
