September 9th, 2020 has been selected for the 2020 CircuitPython Day (9/9/2020).
As with CircuitPython Day 2019, lots of events are planned leading up to and including the day!
But how will you be able to keep track of the date when keeping track of anything has been rather difficult of late?
Enter the Adafruit PyPortal.
With an Adafruit PyPortal coded in CircuitPython, the date and time of an event just takes a few lines of code.
The PyPortal CircuitPython Day 2020 Countdown Clock will do the following:
- Display a custom background .bmp for the event
- Determine the current local time using the WiFi connection to the Internet
- Draw out the countdown time in days, hours, and minutes
- Display a second custom background graphic once the day of the event arrives
