Looking forward to PyCon 2022! #Python #PyConUS @PyCon
PyCon 2022 is coming right up! The conference is April 27, 2022 – May 3, 2022, which includes the pre-conference Summits, the conference itself, and the Sprints following the conference. Kattni, Melissa and Jeff from Adafruit will be attending this year.
Kattni and Melissa will be attending the Education Summit on April 28. Kattni will be giving a talk at the Summit called Simplicity and Fun: Learning with CircuitPython. We will also be hosting a Welcome to CircuitPython mini-sprint.
Kattni, Melissa and Jeff will be attending the conference April 29 – May 1. We will be hosting Open Spaces every day (time TBD), which will be an introduction to CircuitPython using the Circuit Playground Bluefruit (CPB). The Bluefruits will be provided, along with a few other accessories, to enable folks to explore CircuitPython. A quick-start will be available to help you get started, as well as a series of other examples to delve into. All three of us will be available to help.
Kattni and Melissa will be hosting development Sprints 2 May – 3 May. This will be two days of helping folks contribute to CircuitPython. There are many GitHub issues available to choose from as a place to get started. Hardware will be available for a significant number of the libraries, so folks will be able to test any library code they intend to contribute. There are plenty of options including bug fixes, library enhancements, and documentation. As well, if you’re new to CircuitPython, we’ll be happy to accommodate that as well.
All relevant content, including slides, the quick-start, and example code, will be available on GitHub. The repo is brand new, but if you’re interested in keeping up with the process, keep an eye on it as new content will be added over the next couple of weeks.
If you’re planning on attending, and want to meet up, drop in to the Adafruit Discord and let us know ahead of time, or come find us at the conference.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

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.
