This repository is a collection of lessons that showcase some of the things you can do with the Circuit Playground Express (CPX) while teaching you basic concepts of programming and hardware interactions. This assumes the usage of the Circuit Playground Express (CPX) board, specifically the one given during PyCon 2019.
The lessons are organized by hardware categories (such as LED’s, Accelerometer, etc,). Each of the lessons will contains a lesson_name.md file that goes into detail some of the hardware and programming concepts related. There will also be a code.py that can be directly copied and pasted onto the CPX board for usage. The lessons will be designed to build on the concepts taught within each other and therefore it is recommended to follow the lessons in order.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
