Last day for #CircuitPython2024 + new posts

Today is the last day to post #CircuitPython2024 and have it in tomorrow’s wrap up post. Please post yours in the next 24 hours and email [email protected] to let us know.

Since our last batch, we’ve had a few more people post. Thank you!

sl0 posted on the forum hoping to easily test their CircuitPython code.

Dexter emailed “This year I’m interested in plan9 style synthetic filesystems and ferrorelectric RAM on CircuitPython.”

Sanka wrote a blog post about driving the TM1637 LED driver chip from CircuitPython on a Circuit Playground Express.

#CircuitPython2024 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 31st.

Past posts:

  • JohnHind posted on the forum about IP over USB support.
  • jepler (aka stylus on Mastodon) posted to Mastodon to talk about going further with what we’ve already added and raises the question about sunsetting support on boards with limited flash space.
  • Mark Komus also posted to Mastodon about supplementing Adafruit-funded work with community requests and continuing to hang out in the CircuitPython community.
  • Liz (aka BlitzCityDIY) wrote a gist on GitHub about their increasing involvement in CircuitPython including writing libraries and also on documenting all of the cool things we can do with CircuitPython.
  • Anne (aka @anne_engineer on X) wrote on X about their updated wishlist for CircuitPython. Anne’s wish list centers around interoperability with old IBM PCs including running CircuitPython on them!
  • wavesailor posted to the forum about wanting a reference card for migrating between MicroPython and CircuitPython.
  • Scott posted about the importance of new workflows on the Adafruit blog.
  • incrediblelittlebee posted to the forums about the MotorKit library.
  • DJDevon3 emailed in thoughts about displays and the ESP32-S3.

Join Adafruit on Mastodon

Adafruit is on Mastodon, join in!

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.

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!
