Pyscript, running Python code in the browser, is gaining in popularity. At PyCon US 2022, Anaconda’s CEO Peter Wang announced a shiny new technology called PyScript that allows users to write Python and in fact many languages in the browser.

What does it mean for the world and for data scientists to use PyScript?
The most obvious thing is that with PyScript, we can now write Python (and potentially other languages) in HTML and build web applications. PyScript makes the power of Python accessible to a far greater audience of front-end developers and creators.
As Peter mentioned in the talk, “the web browser is the most ubiquitous, portable computer environment in the world.” Indeed, almost everyone has access to a web browser, whether it’s on a computer or on a phone. This means that anyone can access and start programming without any infrastructure barriers.
With PyScript, we no longer need to worry about deployment. PyScript provides the “architectural shift beyond the cloud.” Everything will happen in your web browser. As data scientists, we can share our dashboards and our models in an html file, which will run code whenever others open the file in a web browser.
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.
