We’ve gotten a couple more #CircuitPython2023 posts! Thank you all! It’s not too late to post your own. Please post yours by the end of January 18th (tomorrow!) and email [email protected] to let us know. (Email us even if you miss the “deadline”.)
- a simple project that shows the Pico (W) TinyUSB USB Host implement USB keyboard reading, outputting characters to USB/UART/WiFi
- when the Floppy Wing arrives, simple guides on reading floppies
- someone mentioned a language index/reference – that would help a great deal. ReadTheDocs isn’t cutting it
- A native GIF playing library (C speed). Small resolutions only are ok
- better microcontroller to HDMI display examples
- the frozen module list for each board should be listed on circuitpython.org or otherwise documented better
- CircuitPython.org augmented with a good documentation section

One of the things I mentioned last year, that I didn’t end up getting much into is native mobile app(s) for interacting with CircuitPython devices. I have renewed, but slightly redirected interest in this for 2023. The web workflow built out an API foundation to view and edit files on the device, I think there are some interesting possibilities for mobile work flows that can be built un top of this that I’d like to explore. I am particularly interested in figuring out ways to make the files available to other existing apps, there are many nice looking editing environments on mobile, perhaps we can find the best way to use them with CircuitPython.

Circuit Python 2023: The year of the CircuitPython Retro Gaming Personal Computer
Let’s hope the “CircuitPython Retro Gaming Personal Computer” (RGPC) idea will not follow the “Linux Desktop” trend… I said it in 2021 (https://learn.adafruit.com/u/dglaude/circuitpython2021-the-year-of-the-circuitpython-retro-gaming-personal-computer) but this require a revisit because many of the things I wanted for 2021 are not there yet, so 2023 will be the year…
We are getting closer and closer to that goal, but this time the RGPC will be multi-processor using as many RP2040 as possible to offload some task from the main CPU (that could be a PicoW or something else RP2040).
Because there are new twists (and tricks) possible with that incredible microprocessor.
#CircuitPython2023 is our annual reflection on the state of CircuitPython. We’d love to hear from you too! See the kick-off post for all of the details. Please post by January 18th.
