@keithTheEE’s #CircuitPython2022

2022 with Blinka as the zero

This is the last day of posting these. We’d love to hear from you. Email [email protected] to let us know where your post is.

@KeithTheEE posted a gist. Here is the opening:

I started really diving into circuit python this past year and have been slowly trying to learn what works best for me. Most of my Going Forward is shaped by topics I think I can contribute to, or areas where I came across issues that I’m confident others will also experience (or I’m about to be exceptionally lucky and future me is about to learn the ‘fix’ to those issues that others are using.)

I’ve been heavily focused on adding sensors around my home in hopes of building up ‘smart’ behaviors in the home: blue-light alarms for waking up which turn on during lighter parts of sleep, air quality sensors to help remind me to replace the furnace filter, and some sensors at the ready to answer questions when I wonder, “what would happen if”. So it’s from that perspective that I look forward towards 2022.

Afterwards, Keith touches on community, documentation, time and date APIs, multicore JIT, scientific Python and ulab.


#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:


Join Adafruit on Mastodon

Adafruit is on Mastodon, join in! adafruit.com/mastodon

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.

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
