I wanted to thank Kattni for teaching a great workshop showing how to
get started with Circuit Python and Circuit Playground Express.
I attended Penguicon 2018 in Southfield, MI last weekend. Kattni showed us
how to setup Mu, get Circuit Python running on the board, and how incredibly
easy it is to edit and test code fast. Her GitHub has several great examples
to show how to use the various sensors and devices on the Circuit Playground
The last part of the workshop was combining different things to create a
touch enabled, light up organ. Fun!
Thanks to Adafruit for donating the boards so we can try more things at
home. I hope to start my own workshops soon at i3Detroit, our local
Thanks Adafruit and Kattni!
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.
