Final #CircuitPython2022 Monday @molecularist

2022 with Blinka as the zero

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:


#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.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.
