NEW GUIDE: From Arduino to CircuitPython #AdafruitLearningSystem @adafruit #CircuitPython #Arduino #Python

Arduino to CircuitPython Learn to use CircuitPython

Are you an Arduino or C coder and would love to get in on using CircuitPython on the latest generation of microcontrollers? Or maybe you just hate all the wasted time compiling programs between debug cycles or figuring out arcane library syntax?

Adafruit has you covered! We’ve started a guide to provide you with the syntax of how Arduino does things and the equivalent code in CircuitPython. Get up to speed very quickly and enjoy all the benefits of CircuitPython: Coding in a text editor of your choice, instant change detection and code running, put code onto the microcontroller via copying a file to the onboard flash drive and use of over a hundred libraries written by Adafruit for using hardware with CircuitPython, all free to use and Open Source!


Start today with this guide and watch for updates on more advanced techniques!

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, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
