Brand new to Python? Begin your journey here!
The perfect introduction to Python, starting with the basic concepts as you bring CodeX to life one line of code at a time.
“Python with CodeX” Curriculum Module
Just a few of the included projects:
1. Welcome to CodeX - a tour of the many features of your CodeX. You'll learn about sensors, display, LEDs, and more! Then you'll connect to your computer (Chromebook/Windows/Mac) and write your first few lines of Python code to bring CodeX to life!
2. Light Show - start with the beautiful LED-backlit display, and move on to controlling the 6 indicator LEDs and the 4 neopixels onboard your CodeX. Put your new coding skill to use to make a warning sign that flashes continuously. Then let your creativity soar as you craft an animated art exhibit, powered by Python!
3. Button Up - learn the basics of reading from input devices by exploring CodeX buttons. With a little more Python knowledge you can now control those flashy outputs based on button presses. Hey, you're rocking some I/O!
4. Harmonize - there's an symphony waiting inside your CodeX! With a little Python code, you'll become the maestro of electronic music.
5. Voice Box - continue your audio exploration as you use Python code to record your voice with CodeX's microphone. Learn how to play-back audio samples, and use button-press inputs to create an audio user-interface.
6. Spirit Level - get to know one of the advanced sensors on CodeX, the accelerometer. Your code can use this sensor to precisely read the orientation, and you'll use that knowledge to craft a useful tool. You'll use a little math to convert the accelerometer reading to degrees, and show the angle on your CodeX display.
7. Night Light - another useful peripheral is the onboard ambient light sensor. Can you use it to make a nightlight? With a little Python code, yes you can! What else can you sense? Experiment with detecting the presence of nearby objects, and use the light sensor as another user-interface device.
