– I see growing use and examples for vectorio, an awesome set of tools for graphical shapes
– A learn guide on optimizing CP memory use
– Tangential to CP: Demo of TinyLogicFriend, a logic analyzer running on Cortex-M4 that connects to@sigrokproject for analyzing I2C and others
– Introductory examples of graphical Widgets and input response handling
– more cool Widgets (especially scrolling text box, a way to organize multiple sets of widgets onto pages with a easy way to swap between pages)
– Expansion of vectorio examples(!)
Special hardware request for 2022: a reasonably-priced capacitive multitouch capable display handling at least two touches (including drag, rotation and zoom), witha super fast display interface and board. That’s a lot to ask for!
Thanks to Kevin for kicking off #CircuitPython2022! TinyLogicFriend is very cool and hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves.
I’ll be reflecting on #CircuitPython2021 in my Deep Dive this week and discussing my 2022 goals next week.
#CircuitPython2022 is our annual reflection on the state of CircuitPython. We’d love to hear from you too! See the kick-off post for all of the details.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
