The Python Software Foundation 2020 Year in Review #Python @ThePSF
The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has posted their 2020 Year in Review blog post:
The beginning of 2020 was paving a new way for the PSF to support its community. The PSF Board Directors strategically planned to devote funding to Python’s core and to hiring staff. We expected a healthy revenue from PyCon US 2020 and had big plans for it!
But we’ve had our fill of bad news! Instead of highlighting the negative impacts of 2020 (we touch on that here), let’s take a look at all the positivity we witnessed and experienced within the Python community throughout 2020.
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.
