Tammy posted her thoughts on CircuitPython in 2020 on her blog. Check it out to read about helping monitor blood oxygen levels, library packaging and displayio. Here is a highlight:
I think CircuitPython is an amazing tool which makes the world of microcontrollers and hardware hacking so much more accessible for people who want to move beyond [MakeCode]. The ecosystem has grown by leaps and bounds in 2019, and I’m excited to see what 2020 brings. I’m also excited to increase my level of contribution in 2020, and if you use CircuitPython and love it you should think about contributing too!
#circuitpython2020 is our annual reflection on the state of CircuitPython. We’d love to hear from you too! See the kick-off post for all of the details. Here are all of the previous posts:
Eink, E-paper, Think Ink – Collin shares six segments pondering the unusual low-power display technology that somehow still seems a bit sci-fi – http://adafruit.com/thinkink
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.
