  • 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.

Working with CircuitPython? Tag your projects #CircuitPythonDay2022 on social media and Adafruit will look to highlight them.

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, 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.

Join 35,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

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.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
