Thank you so much, all 5,000 of you! The Python on Micrcontrollers newsletter at Adafruitdaily.com reached over 5,000 subscribers last week. Thank you to the community, the readers, the contributors, and the teams that make this spam-free, excellent resource, available to so many people each and every week.
We started the newsletter 2 years ago, and in April of 2018 really focused on bringing all thing Python on hardware to one excellent resource and it’s become our fastest growing newsletter month over month!
One of the reasons is the activity and sharing in the Python community, which is amplified when you bring all the fun and projects with electronics together. Each week it’s becoming a challenge to keep up with all the projects from the community, news, new devices … and that is an excellent “problem” to have! A newsletter, a site, an event, is a reflection of a community and we’re so happy with all the people coming together who like to code, and like to make things.
It’s hard to pick one big news event or community project over the last couple years, however – here’s a list of things that really shined brightly in the last few months.
- CircuitPython creates new assistive tech opportunities.
- Digi-Key … Python on hardware.
- Code with Mu and Made with Mu.
