In the Adafruit Feather ESP32 V2 guide, you already learned how to use the Feather with Arduino and Wippersnapper. However, the ESP32 runs wonderfully with MicroPython as well. So what about that? Well, now you can learn that too!
The Adafruit Feather ESP32 V2 guide MicroPython Setup page covers getting started with MicroPython on the Feather. The page includes two examples. First up, there is a simple blink example using the REPL, where you blink the built-in red LED. Second, there is a thorough explanation of using Thonny to load a simple WiFi connection example as a main.py file. These two examples of interacting with MicroPython in different ways will make going further on your own much easier!

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.
