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.
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.
