In a recent discussion with Scott Shawcroft, an engineer at Adafruit, I got really excited. He was explaining their transition into using CircuitPython on their products, as well the benefits such a transition would provide. One major benefit is that you simply plug in the device and it shows up as USB storage, then you drop your code onto it. There is no need for an IDE. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this feature, but the fact that Adafruit’s selection of cutting edge prototyping tools are going to have this got me extremely excited.
