#FiveThings You Didn’t Know Python Could Do (video) –
Python: a large and terrifying snake OR the third most popular programming language. This week, Python (the language, not the snake) aficionado Nina Zakharenko joins us for Five Things that you didn’t know that Python can do. And don’t worry, there are plenty of snake references and even a free potato joke. Also, Burke finds snake facts on the internet and Nina tries her first Goo Goo Cluster.
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.
