Code in Python


Python is a high-level programming language which means it's designed to be easier to read, write and maintain. It has a built-in interpreter which means there are no extra steps, like compiling, to get your code to work.

nRF52840 Connect Kit can run CircuitPython which allows you to access hardware-specific functionality and peripherals with Python programming language. With CircuitPython, there are no upfront desktop downloads needed. Once you get your board set up, open any text editor, and start editing code. It's that simple.

Why CircuitPython?

CircuitPython is based on MicroPython and features unified Python core APIs and a growing list of 300+ device libraries and drivers that work with it. See differences from MicroPython.
