Contribute to the CircuitPython weekly newsletter! @adafruit on @github #CircuitPython

Adafruit Daily Landing-2
Adafruit has spam-free newsletters and never shares your email address. We are so bonkers about this we made another site called Adafruitdaily.com where you sign up for our newsletter. We don’t tie it to your store account. We don’t have pop-ups or auto-subscribe you to email newsletters when you purchase. Why do we do this? Because we hate that and want to do good and be good. That’s how we wish every store/site did things. ANYWAY – we revamped our CircuitPython related newsletter. Now, anyone can add links and news (and more) using GitHub. This is a community made newsletter for CircuitPython, because CircuitPython is “Code + Community.”

Adafruit Code Community Googleplus
Each week we have Python + hardware news, MicroPython news, and of course CircuitPython news. From cool jobs, to projects, to events – it’s all there. Here is the latest one.

To make it super easy for anyone to contribute recommended links, we’ve put the newsletter itself on GitHub. Anyone with a free GitHub account can contribute!

The upcoming one is here circuitpython-weekly-newsletter/2018-03-27-weekly.md.

The email styled version is here: https://adafruit.github.io/circuitpython-weekly-newsletter/drafts/2018-03-27-weekly.html
