Expanding on the popular MakeCode Minute series John teaches fundamental MakeCode techniques in the context of real projects, such as hand washing timers, video game controllers, LED animations, music makers, soil sensors, retro games, and more.
Covering MakeCode for Circuit Playground Express, micro:bit, maker boards, and MakeCode Arcade, MakeCode Live with John Park offers a wide variety of platforms for viewers to learn in both the browser-based simulator and on actual hardware. Tune in to the next episode with your kids, parents, or virtual classroom — come on into the chat to participate in the fun! Every Tuesday @ 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern.
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.
