“The awesome power of CircuitPython” Empowering makers to make businesses @arturo182 @adafruit @tindie @circuitpython #circuitpython #oshw #opensource


CircuitPython is empowering makers to make businesses. Arturo has a successful Tindie store, selling over 400+ CircuitPython powered Serpentes.


Serpente is a tiny CircuitPython development board, perfect for quick projects and prototyping! It’s open-source hardware (OSHWA UID SE000002), and open-source software. When there are updates to CircuitPython, all the new features, enhancements, fixes, and more are automatically available for all users (downloads for the board are on circuitpython.org).


In addition to the boards being available on Tindie, they’re also available on Adafruit.com now as well. Arturo writes “Just sold my 400th Serpente on Tindie – Couldn’t have done it without the awesome power of CircuitPython!”


CircuitPython allows engineers from small businesses to large organizations to participate and thrive in an ecosystem. From the 200+ “batteries included” libraries, to content marketing, and development resources, CircuitPython is creating businesses and community together. Serpente is a real-time example to watch when open-source software and open-source hardware maximizes its potential. Over half of the 116+ boards on circuitpython.org/downloads are boards that are not made by Adafruit, it’s one of the fastest growing choices for engineers for their hardware. Even the Open-Source Hardware Summit badge is powered by CircuitPython.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
