NOTE: this meeting will be on 6 Oct due to a scheduling conflict.

The Circuit Playground Express is a small, cheap($32) dev board from Adafruit Industries designed to introduce electronics and programming to the novice. It's built around an ATSAMD21 ARM Cortex MO processor and is programmable with either circuitpython or Microsoft's 'Makecode' block programming interface. The board also houses a variety of sensors (motion, temperature, light, touch), buttons, a slide switch and IR transmit/receive capability. In this presentation I'll demo some of the easier projects that I've mastered and maybe include something using the Adafruit Crickit, and add-on board for the CPX designed for simple robotics.
