Stream Details

  • CircuitPython Day Introduction
    • Join Paul Cutler for the official introduction to CircuitPython Day! Learn about the schedule, and the basic details of each event.
  • Celebrating Code & Community: A CircuitPython Day Panel Discussion
    • Panelists take a look back at CircuitPython’s accomplishments over the past year, look forward to what is to come, community Q&A, and more.
    • Hosted by: Paul Cutler
  • CircuitPython Development Sprint Intro Video
    • Join Alec and Kattni for a quick introduction to the CircuitPython Development Sprint.
  • CircuitPython Project Build with Maker Melissa
    • Join Maker Melissa on her first ever livestream. This project will be a simple robotics project that uses the Adafruit CLUE to add Bluetooth control to the Ring:bit Buggy robotic car.
  • Special Edition CircuitPython Themed Show & Tell
    • Liz Clark hosts a special edition of Show & Tell that focuses on CircuitPython-themed projects. It will be a great highlight reel of all the wonderful things that folks in the community have built and worked on using CircuitPython. This Special Edition S&T will have a slightly different format than the Wednesday night S&Ts. Folks who join us to show off their projects will have more time, up to 5 minutes, to get into the details! We typically have to keep it short, but this Special Edition S&T has set aside more time for showing and sharing. Hope to see you there!
  • CircuitPython 8 Preview
    • Scott will cover all of the changes upcoming in CircuitPython 8
  • CircuitPython Day Chat with Kattni, Jeff and Dan
    • Kattni, Jeff and Dan get together for the third year in a row to talk about what was the most interesting thing each of them has done with CircuitPython over the last year.
  • Foamyguy CircuitPython Day Game Jam Stream
    • On CircuitPython Day, Foamyguy be combining 2 of his favorite things, CircuitPython and Games. He will stream the making of a CircuitPython game jam game. His goal will be to make a basic but playable and fun game within the time constraints of a few hours, and he’ll be streaming the process. After the stream, he will publish the code to the game so folks can play on their own CircuitPython devices.
