“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.
