PyCon US 2018, a conference for the Python programming language, hits full stride tomorrow as talks begin. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for the latest videos from the conference. Videos from some tutorials and the EDU summit are available now!
Here is one of Josh Lowe presenting his work on EduBlocks! EduBlocks is geared towards bridging the gap between block based programming with Scratch or Make:Code and text based programming like CircuitPython. CircuitPython support is coming soon!
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.
