learning-python (23 Part Series)
In this session, we intended to have Cecil join us live from Microsoft Ignite but due to internet connectivity issues on-site we were unable to do it. Instead Brian discussed announcements from the event and walked through his talk on the Circuit Playground Express device. The device is made by adafruit and uses a version of Python called Circuit Python that is built to run on microcontrollers.
The following are notes and details recapping a past live stream where we live code together. The idea behind these streams is that they provide real-world examples of running into problems and solving them or working towards solving them live. Enjoy this latest one on Python 🙂👍

Clips are a feature on Twitch that let you cut and capture segments of the live stream in the moment (up to 60 seconds). See how to use clips on Twitch for more details. The following are some fun moments captured from this stream:
Links not working on Twitch? It's most likely because Twitch will only save my stream recordings for about 60 days. Use the YouTube link at the top of this page instead.
This table helps point out different segments of the stream (highlighted in bold) or moments we learned something (not bold). The timestamps link to the video on Twitch at that point in the recording. If you'd like the YouTube link above will have similar timestamps and link to those same points in the recording as well.
