Brent’s take on #CircuitPython2019 #CircuitPython #Adafruit @Adafruit

Brent Rubell provides his thoughts on CircuitPython in 2019:

Wishlist for 2019:

  • Continued networking support:
    • 2018 brought support for LoRaWAN, BLE, and the beginnings of ESP-coprocessor support for WiFi.
    • Also Linux devices (like the Raspberry Pi) can now be programmed in CircuitPython and communicate with Adafruit IO.
  • Async
    • Much like a few of these recaps, I’d like to see support (or the beginnings of supporting) asynchronous programing in CircuitPython.
  • Low-Power Modes
    • DeepSleep for ESP-based devices (@danh had this as well on his list).
  • Simplified Release Page
    • With the additions of new CircuitPython boards on what seems like a weekly basis (which is fantastic), the release page is getting long. Adding language support for each build has made it longer as well. Something similar to NODEMCU-Build would simplify the question of “which version/board do I install”. It’d also show what’s currently offered!

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, 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.
