Matt Trentini’s take on #CircuitPython2019 #CircuitPython #Adafruit Adafruit

#CircuitPython2019

Matt Trentini posts thoughts on CircuitPython in 2019.

The focus on fostering an inclusive, welcoming community has been a tremendous success. New users are treated with respect, patience and courtesy. Adafruit have fostered a wonderful environment!

Documentation is excellent. Tutorials and reference documentation is thorough and well written.

Excluding a device with network connectivity, the CircuitPython hardware has been excellent! Not cheap but fantastic quality and generally worth the extra cost.

The library bundle is great, very thorough. Easy to get started with a large number of peripherals. Though I’ve found the quality of implementation of each library varies quite a lot.

The Python for Microcontrollers newsletter is a terrific resource. Please keep it up!

Included are thoughts in the following areas:

  • Improved compatibility with MicroPython
  • displayio
  • LoRa support
  • Video content
  • Network connected devices
  • Small devices
  • RISC-V and FPGA’s

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.
