Thanks for coming out to the chat!

Pt 2405
Thanks for coming out to the chat! Special thanks to Nathan from SparkFun who was our guest answering all your engineering questions with Ladyada! Also, kudos to Felicia Williams for the help running the show behind the scenes!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 32,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. Nothing to do with the chat (which was nuts!), but I’m totally jealous about that modular component tray setup behind you. That’s pretty sweet for organizing parts you’re using on a regular basis, or even tools. Haven’t come across anything similar here in Europe (though I probably haven’t looked hard enough either).


  2. kevin, they’re in every hardware equip. catalog here. called ‘akrobins’ (the original company who made them being Akro) but theres many knockoffs. the original akrobins are the best tho.

  3. Great chat session! With that many viewers an hour really wasn’t enough time 🙁 Could you guys set up an email where we could email you questions throughout the week and you guys go over them during the chat?

  4. it was fun, thanks for inviting me over!!

  5. The chat was fun this week! Keep up the great work. I think next week you can have phillip torrone be your special guest! Hehehe 😛

  6. I am totally bummed that I missed this chat! I have to pay more attention!

  7. Is there any way to download these chats after they have happened?


  8. not at this time.

  9. Fantastic chat! I love how companies just happen by accident. Thanks for sharing all the info.
