Radomir Dopieralski (aka deshipu), friend of Adafruit and uGame (pictured) creator, just posted his thoughts about CircuitPython in 2019. Check it out here.
Adafruit has requested on their blog feedback and comments about CircuitPython in 2019, so here I go. I am mostly going to talk about three things: the projects that I personally want to do using it, the ongoing developments that I would love to see finished this year, and some completely crazy stuff that could potentially be added if someone smarter than me and with copious free time worked on it.
We’d love to hear your thoughts as well! Check out our call for posts here for all of the details. Stay tuned for more people’s thoughts and an overall post at the end of January.
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.
