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!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
