Tonight in London: MicroPython @Meetup | #esp8266 #microbit #pyboard

The London MicroPython Meetup are gathering tonight at the Notting Hill Gate Eagle Lab off that eponymous road in west London – more details here. Kudos for exploring Adafruit boards:

We’ll have one technical talk and demo (MicroPython with wings, looking at the Adafruit CircuitPython feather and wing ecosystem).

We’ll have the usual informal, fun show-and-tell sessions.

The final event will be a demo where everyone who has a micro:bit can bring one (or more) along with the firefly program installed.

This allows the micro:bits to interact like a cloud of blinking fireflies. Some of us are bringing lots of micro:bits so the result should be quite spectacular!

Everyone is welcome but if you have one or more micro:bits, please bring them and join the firefly demo. The software is described here. (The code is at the end of the article).

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.
