Adafruit IO Wippersnapper DevLog #1: What IS Wippersnapper? #AdafruitIO #Adafruit #IoT @adafruit @adafruitio
Adafruit IOWippersnapper is a new way to create robust Internet of Things Projects without writing code. Wippersnapper is in early development and it’s not out yet.
BUT, we will be publishing content about Wippersnapper whenever we have exciting new things to show you!
In this video, Brent explains what Wippersnapper is. Then, demonstrates how to connect hardware to Wippersnapper, set up a component, and blink an LED from Adafruit IO. All without writing a line of code!
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.

I definitely like you Wippersnapper concept, can wait to see it in the real world, I think it could really help beginners to get started with their projects quickly.
I hope Adafruit considers adding an option on the boards that Wippersnapper supports to have the Wippersnapper library pre-installed upon checkout. If that is something you think you can support.
