The Adafruit ESP32-S2 Feather guide already had more than enough to get you started with your new Feather, including a huge list of CircuitPython Essentials pages with examples of how to use many of the features of CircuitPython with your board. Recently, support for cooperative multitasking using asyncio was added to CircuitPython. Now you can get started with that as well!
The new Multitasking with asyncio page in the ESP32-S2 Feather guide provides an introduction to cooperative multitasking in CircuitPython using asyncio. It includes a demonstration of how to control two animations on two separate NeoPixel rings using a single button. There is also a detailed walkthrough of the coding example. Cooperative multitasking with asyncio can seem intimidating at first, but this page aims to simplify it so you can get started using it in your own projects.
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.
