Thursday #CircuitPython2022 Updates

2022 with Blinka as the zero

A few more folks have written in to give us their thoughts about CircuitPython in 2022. Thank you!

Phil (PT) from Adafruit talked on Ask An Engineer last night about #CircuitPython2022 and sent some links today:

Patrick (@askpatrickw) posted a gist with two new projects and a review of last years. Here are the two new ones:

2022_1: Snakes in the #%*$& Van

Goal: Layout the requirements and design of a system to use CircuitPython as a basis for a Camper Van (or RV or Boat) monitoring, tracking and alerting system.

NOTE: This may never be built on CP but I’d like to go through the thought experiment.

2022_2: 3D Mouse Project

Goal: Document requirements and design a 3D CAD mouse which will work with Fusion 360. This might also be called a Jog Wheel.

NOTE: It is very likely this will work with other programs, but my needs are for it to work with Fusion 360.

Lastly, I just posted my #CircuitPython2020 to the blog and will talk it over in my stream tomorrow.


#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. Here are the previous posts:


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
