CircuitPython Hack Chat • Hackaday.io. Block out your calendar for noon PST (3pm ET) on Friday the 27th for a Hack Chat about CircuitPython Beta. Adafruit will be leading a discussion about CircuitPython Beta. CircuitPython Beta is Adafruit’s new extension to MicroPython that adds SAMD21 support and other enhancements. Adafruit is doing a 5 board giveaway during the chat! There are unreleased super-special CIrcuitPlayground m0 Express boards.
We’ll have a special LIVE video behind the scenes too! Youtube (embed) above and it will likely be on Twitter, Facebook, Twitch and Instagram!
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, 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.
