NEW GUIDE: CircuitPython 101: Basic Builtin Data Structures @MicrochipMakes #SAMD51
A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System from Dave Astels discusses CircuitPython and the data structures afforder by Adafruit’s line of Microchip Technology SAMD51 M4 processors. The extra memory in the M4 line allows for fancier data manipulation including tuples, lists, and dictionaries. Dave shows how a song program can be coded with various data structures to demonstrate the versatility of CircuitPython on these processors.
Do you have plans for the power of the M4 in your projects? Let us know in the comments!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
