I need to delve more into the Arduino side of this board, as I have mainly focused on… CircuitPython
I’ve been a fan of CircuitPython since PyCon 2018 where I took part in a session with Katnii and Scott from Adafruit and lucky for me that CLUE can also be programmed in CircuitPython.
Writing code in CircuitPython is very similar to MicroPython and Python 3, so I am right at home. We need to use an editor such as Nicholas Tollervey’s Mu, or Visual Studio Code if you are a more seasoned hacker.
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.
