Adafruit Daily is not connected to your Adafruit.com shopping account and experience in any way whatsoever – why? We hate spam and we will never spam anyone, ever. Adafruit has been venture capital free (VC) from the start, we have no loans, no sponsors, no advertising. We are 100% supported by you, the customer & community. So when we decided to do a newsletter we wanted to make it super-clear, your information is private, will never be shared and it has nothing to do with with your purchases at Adafruit. Want to learn more, see “Our promise” posted by our founder, Ladyada.

Here was today’s MicroPython newsletter. Also included it in this post too.

Are you curious where MicroPython came from and why it was created?  Watch this excellent PyCon Australia 2016 talk from Damien George, the creator of MicroPython, titled MicroPython: A Journey from Kickstarter to Space.  Damien describes why he created MicroPython, what it can do, and some plans for the future of MicroPython.

Don’t miss the latest 1.8.7 release of MicroPython too!  In particular this release adds support for assembly language output on ESP8266 and related boards which could improve performance in the future.

Adafruit’s CircuitPython beta is up to version 0.8.3 too and includes a number of small bug fixes.  Don’t know what CircuitPython is or have questions about it?  Be sure to watch this intro to CircuitPython beta video, and check out the CircuitPython hack chat on hackaday.io Friday January 27th at 3pm EST.


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 code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
