On page 117 of HackSpace Magazine, issue 10 there is a massive Adafruit Feather review (10 out 10!) … “Don’t overlook the fact that it supports CircuitPython. This is a big deal, especially in the educational market. The board comes preloaded with the UF2 bootloader. This means all of your code can be dropped on the board, just like saving a file to a USB drive. No compiling, no uploading to the board, and more importantly, no drivers needed. It’s really simple and works on a wide array of computers.” - HackSpace Magazine Issue 10, PDF, BUY and SUBSCRIBE.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
