#CircuitPython2020 Recap

Wow, 2020 has seen CircuitPython growing even faster than 2019 already. We had many more #CircuitPython2020 responses than last year, 5.0.0 is just around the corner, we have over 200 libraries, over 100 boards and the website just got a face lift! Thank you to every one for helping make that happen.

With #CircuitPython2020 we asked you to post your vision for CircuitPython in 2020 and so many of you posted. Kattni, in particular, pointed out that we should do something similar throughout the year. It is a great idea! So, as you use and explore CircuitPython this year, post your thoughts about the future of CircuitPython with the #circuitpython2020 just as we requested earlier this month. We’ll leave the email open and blog your posts as we see them. If you have a specific feature in mind or want to see what we’re working on then check out the CircuitPython issues here.

Here is a list of all the posts so far:

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, 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.
