Nicholas Tollervey (@ntoll) take on #CircuitPython2019 #CircuitPython #Adafruit @Adafruit
Nicholas Tollervey (aka ntoll), friend of Adafruit and Mu creator, posted his thoughts about CircuitPython in 2019. Check it out on the Mu blog here.
The CircuitPython folks at Adafruit take great care and attention over how they facilitate the community growing around the project. The result of their efforts is a welcoming, diverse and supportive group of people championing CircuitPython through their projects, code and interactions with the wider “tech” community.
CircuitPython is one of the best examples of this sort of community organising that I know of.
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, 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.
