Kushal’s Colourful Adventures with Adafruit Circuit Playground Express #CircuitPlaygroundExpress #PyCon @MadeWithMu @kushaldas @Adafruit @DigiKey

Via the MadeWithMu blog – Kushal Das, a friend of Mu, community hero, Tor core team member, Python core developer and programmer extraordinaire, has blogged about the fun he’s been having with Adafruit’s Circuit Playground Express board, CircuitPython and Mu.

Thanks to the enormous generosity of Adafruit and DigiKey every attendee found a Circuit Playground Express in their swag bag!

At the time I was sorely tempted to blog about this amazing gift, but decided to wait until I found evidence of any friend of mine actually using the board. I figured that if a friend had the unprompted motivation to blog or share their experience with the device, then it would be evidence that it was a worthy sponsorship.

Circuit Playground Express

Kushal explains his experiment like this:

The goal is to guess a color for the next NeoPixel on the board and then press Button A to see if you guessed right or not. Py and I are continuously playing this for the last weeks.

The idea of CircuitPython, where we can connect the device to a computer and start editing code and see the changes live, is super fantastic and straightforward. It takes almost no time to start working on these, the documentation is also unambiguous and with many examples.
