There are many IoT platforms out there, including Adafruit’s own Adafruit.IO, but if you want to build really big projects or run a business using IoT, you’ll need to use a platform that provides support for projects that scale. Microsoft Azure has resources for these types of applications and the best news is that you can use it with CircuitPython.
We’ve launched a new guide that will walk you through how to get started with Microsoft Azure using a Feather ESP32-S2 TFT and a BME688 sensor to monitor temperature, humidity and air pressure.
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.
