Over the weekend two more folks posted their #CircuitPython2022. Thank you! This is our last week of posting these. We’d love to hear from you. Email [email protected] to let us know where your post is.
Tammy posted to her blog. Here is a snippet:
Consider this: the Circuit Playground Bluefruit <https://www.adafruit.com/product/4333> has about 30 times the processing power of my first home computer, includes a raft of sensors and connectivity, and costs $25 (about 1/65th of the price of that first computer). There are both cheaper and more capable micros out there than the Bluefruit, of course. In fact, the array of microcontrollers and sensors and other building blocks available today is staggering; sometimes it’s hard to know which one to use!
I really think that CircuitPython has been, and continues to be, a game-changer for the hardware maker community. Python is accessible, well-documented and overall well supported, and I think writing code in Python and copying a script file to your device feels like a lower barrier to entry than the Arduino or FreeRTOS workflows.
Charlie wrote a blog post and summarized it in a tweet:
Been meaning to share this. My humble wish. More AudioIn functions. Yes, I want to build something that's sort of a live loop mixer. Of course, with a twist. As always. #CircuitPython2022 https://t.co/hTaDz7zpoL
