Come learn how to program in Circuit Python. CircuitPython is aimed at beginners and is a tool for teaching and learning. So whatever your experience level is, you are welcome to join in! Yes, newbies are welcome.
This will be a two hour hands on CircuitPython workshop led by Kattni Rembor, an embedded software developer, technical writer and community manager with Adafruit Industries. We will be provide the CircuitPython Express boards required for the class.
We have only 25 seats for this workshop. So we will select those responses which have original and interesting ideas on what you want to build using CircuitPython Express.
Entries will be anonymized before evaluation. Our decision for the selected applications will be final.
Final date for application submission: December 13, 2018 ChiPy main event.
Event: 20 December 2018, 6:30-8:30pm
Location: Braintree, 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza #800, Chicago, IL 60654
Circuit Playground Express; Circuit Playground Express is the next step towards a perfect introduction to electronics and programming. We’ve taken the original Circuit Playground Classic and made it even better! Not only did we pack even more sensors in, we also made it even easier to program.
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, 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.
