This is the first article in a series that explores concepts of state in CircuitPython.
In this installment, we discuss the platform we’re using (both CircuitPython and the Adafruit M0/M4 boards that support it), and build a simple circuit for demonstration purposes. We’ll also talk a bit about abstraction.
This series is intended for people who are new to Python, programming, and/or microcontrollers, so there’s an effort to explain things as thoroughly as possible. However, experience with basic Python would be helpful.
The article goes in-depth about Adafruit’s CircuitPython compatible boards and demonstrates connecting external buttons to several boards. Great series, we look forward to more.
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.
