Writing software is like gardening – the flowers are beautiful but you’re going to spend a lot of time weeding! Except instead of weeding, its keeping up to date with new frameworks, operating systems and dependancies. It’s a ton of work! So why not make it easy on your self with automation?
In this guide we’ll go through how to use GitHub (a free service for storing source code) + Doxygen ( a free documentation standard/parser) + TravisCI.org (a free service for continuous integration/testing) To automatically document and test your code.
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.
