Writing a device updater? Seriously consider WebUSB! @ NumWorks.

WebUSB is a set of functions that that let you do USB communications in JavaScript straight from a web browser. It perfectly matches all our requirements:
A perfect match…
1. It is available on a wide range of devices and operating systems (Android, Windows, macOS and Linux)
2. It works out-of-the-box on most operating systems
3. We only need to write one JavaScript codebase for all devices and operating systems. Couldn’t get any smaller!

You’re going to hear a lot about WebUSB soon, this is a good start. Also, NumWorks is a cool graphing calculator.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
