NEW GUIDE: CircuitPython 101: Functions #AdafruitLearningSystem @adafruit
A new guide today in the Adafruit Learning System, a continuation of the CircuitPython 101 series:
CircuitPython 101: Functions -author Dave Astels walks you through Python functions, what they are, how to use them, the tips and the tricks. Functions let you package up blocks of code to help make your programs more reusable, shareable, modular, and understandable.
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.
