Getting Started with Adafruit Circuit Playground Express: The Multipurpose Learning and Development Board from Adafruit

Coming out September 10th, a new book by maker Mike Barela (who is now a consulting engineer at Adafruit):

Getting Started with Adafruit Circuit Playground Express: The Multipurpose Learning and Development Board from Adafruit

Author: Mike Barela
Binding: Paperback, Kindle, eBook
Publisher: Maker Media, Inc
ISBN-13: 9781680454888ISBN-10: 1680454889

Foreword by Limor “Ladyada” Fried

Learn about the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, the fastest growing electronics learning board available. From the author of Getting Started with Adafruit Trinket, the book provides hands on information on getting up and running with the learning board including programming in MakeCode & CircuitPython and setup for use with the Arduino IDE.

Adafruit plans on selling the book as well as major publishing outlets. Adafruit will also have bundles with Circuit Playground Express to get you started. If you received your Adabox 008 and you’d like a hands-on resource for Circuit Playground, the book would also be great. The pace is also good for teachers/instructors to get people familiar with programmable microcontrollers.

See the retailers who are taking pre-orders (so far) in this list and ask your reseller if they’ll be stocking this book.

There should also be something happening at Maker Faire New York September 22-23. More info when we get it.

Let us know in the comments if you look forward to this publication!


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.
