NEW PRODUCT – Programming with MicroPython by Nicholas Tollervey


If you’ve already dipped your toes in the Python pool as a programmer, educator, or maker, you’re ready to learn more—and have fun along the way! This practical guide delivers the knowledge you need to roll up your sleeves and create exceptional embedded projects with this lean and efficient programming language. You’ll be able to build faster, better, more intuitive projects with the power of Python behind you. No more managing buffers, memory-corruption, or icky parsing code.

  • Work with MicroPython (and CircuitPython) on four devices: PyBoardthe micro:bitCircuit Playground Express, and ESP8266/ESP32 boards
  • Explore a framework that helps you generate, evaluate, and evolve embedded projects that solve real problems
  • Dive into practical MicroPython examples: visual feedback, input and sensing, GPIO, networking, sound and music, and robotics
  • Learn how idiomatic MicroPython helps you express a lot with the minimum of resources
  • Take the next step by getting involved with the Python community

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
