PyCon2019 Keynote: Python on Hardware – Nina Zakharenko #PythonHardware #PyCon2019 #CircuitPython #Python #CircuitPlaygroundExpress @nnja

PyCon2019 was a great success this weekend! Especially so for showcasing Python on hardware. All attendees received a Digi-Key sponsored Adafruit Circuit Playground Express. Some great fun was had. One highlight was a keynote talk by Nina Zakharenko. The video is above and there are slides in PDF below.

Nina discusses making physical things, her background, and her melding of hardware with the growing use of Python in education and society. With a few lines of Python, you can make lights glow, react to buttons, make music, and much, much more. Edit code in any text editor, copy it ti the flash drive that shows up when a board is plugged in, the code runs! No software development environment required!

There are over 50 hardware boards on CircuitPython.org that are programmable in CircuitPython

The slides, in PDF format, are here.
