Cedar Grove Studios take on #CircuitPython2019 #CircuitPython #Adafruit @Adafruit
Cedar Grove Studios, Adafruit Learning System author, audio guru, and CircuitPython fan posted their thoughts about CircuitPython in 2019. Check it out on GitHub.
When given the opportunity to think about how I’d like to see CircuitPython grow in 2019, I focused on my past projects that are anxiously waiting for conversion to CircuitPython and future projects planned for this year. Seven topical areas emerged from that thought process. What I’ve included here is a bulleted shopping list of ideas and features that would help my projects and improve my coding skills.
Adafruit would 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, 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.
