Changes in the latest Microsoft MakeCode for Circuit Playground Express today #MakeCode #CircuitPlaygroundExpress #Programming @MSMakeCode @Adafruit
A new beta version of Microsoft MakeCode for the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express is out today. The most significant change is support in the Music category for a Play Melody block where there are both predefined melodies and create your own mini sequencer. Multiple sequential blocks will extend the number of notes played.
This version also removes support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 as a supported browser.
See John Park’s MakeCode Minute talk about the Melody block in the video below.
