Sparking Creativity in LED Art with CircuitPython – a PyCascades talk by Debra Ansell #PyCascades #CircuitPython #NeoPixels #Wearables @GeekMomProjects
At the virtual PyCascades conference last sunday, Debra Ansell, host of Geek Mom Projects, presented a wonderful talk on “Sparking Creativity in LED Art with CircuitPython”
Making and creative coding opens a whole new world of possibilities! Join this interactive session with Debra, author of the popular Geek Mom Projects blog, while she shows off live demos of some of her favorite dazzling LED projects. Debra will cover different types of LEDs that can be used, how she’s incorporated CircuitPython and MicroPython in some of her designs, and so much more!
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.
