New: Getting started guide for CircuitPython on the Sony Spresense #CircuitPython @SonyDevWorld
Sony has just released a brand new getting started guide to help developers program their Spresense microcontroller board with CircuitPython.
Python developers will feel familiar with the way to program Spresense. After the initial set-up for Spresense, there is no need for any extra desktop development environment tools. Use your favorite text editor to start developing. The brand new getting started guide helps set up Spresense for CircuitPython in a matter of minutes in a step-by-step fashion. All CircuitPython libraries have example code to help you kick-start your programming.
Sony plans to continue expanding the guide with tutorials featuring unique Spresense features and capabilities when using CircuitPython. You can get Spresense updates via Sony’s Developer World on Twitter.

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.
