It’s Maker Faire New York Week!
There are lots of happenings leading up to Maker Faire in the Python world. Coming off of PyCon UK, the Python world is stoked. Coming this week: Maker Faire 2018 will be a cornucopia of Python goodness, both in announcements and in networking to see what is happening what should be ahead.
If you’re able, come over to Maker Faire. Keep in touch via the Adafruit Discord channel CircuitPython area as the Adafruit CircuitPython team members will be roaming the faire, both Saturday and Sunday, and we would like to talk to Python enthusiasts. Adafruit does not have a booth this year, but we’re out and about!
If we’re not touring, we’re probably hanging out with our friends at Digi-key in Zone 3. They will be working with the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, come see what they’ve made. Ands speaking of the CPX, at noon on stage in Zone 3, Adafruit engineer Mike Barela will be talking about his new book from Make – Getting Started with Circuit Playground Express. New to CPX? Like to get going with CircuitPython? This book will help you get started. Mike will be signing books afterwards and talking to folks, come say hi.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
