NEW GUIDE: Getting Started with Raspberry Pi Pico and CircuitPython #circuitpython #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
CircuitPython for Pico will get you started in minutes!
The Raspberry Pi foundation changed single-board computing when they released the Raspberry Pi computer, now they’re ready to do the same for microcontrollers with the release of the brand new Raspberry Pi Pico. This low-cost microcontroller board features a powerful new chip, the RP2040, and all the fixin’s to get started with embedded electronics projects at a stress-free price. And what makes it even better? It works with CircuitPython!
The Getting Started with Raspberry Pi Pico and CircuitPython guide has everything you need to get started with your new Raspberry Pi Pico board with CircuitPython. There are overview and pinouts pages. It also has how to get started coding with CircuitPython, including programming basics, and a series of examples to show you how to use different features of the Pico with CircuitPython. Finally, there’s an FAQ and Troubleshooting page with answers to the most common questions about the Pico and CircuitPython.
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.
