A couple folks wrote in to let us know what they’d like to see for #circuitpython2020.
Eric wrote in to emphasize things needed for teaching CircuitPython to new Electrical Engineering students at a university. They’d like to see GPIO interrupt support, user level debugging and a nightly VM build that could be used for CircuitPython development.
Chris wrote in to provide a perspective from an existing Arduino programmer. They’d like to see more concise documentation, a guide on Python basics and, most importantly, VSCode Intellisense support.
#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:
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.
