You've been introduced to CircuitPython, and worked through getting everything set up. What's next? CircuitPython Essentials!

There are a number of core modules built into CircuitPython, which can be used along side the many CircuitPython libraries available. The following pages demonstrate some of these modules. Each page presents a different concept including a code example with an explanation. All of the examples are designed to work with your microcontroller board.

Time to get started learning the CircuitPython essentials!

Many of the demos in this guide require the EyeLights LED Glasses Driver and the EyeLights LED Glasses Panel. The I2C Essentials example requires an I2C sensor breakout.

The following components are needed to complete all of the examples.
