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:

bought, working with company to get a replacement part..

bought, on the way.

software i am trying.

what i want is this, but $40 and python powered..

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:

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 is on Mastodon, join in!

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, 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.
