Circuit Playground Classic and Make Code

by lfischback on Tue Oct 20, 2020 2:39 pm

I know that the circuit playground express is not compatible with Make Code, but is there a fix that would make this possible. If not, does anyone know who I could contact to see if this could happen? We have a few hundred of these and are trying to get them into classrooms, but they only use Make Code. I need help!!!

Um.. the title says "Classic" and the body says "Express".. based on the context, I assume you mean "Classic" in both cases.

So.. no, the Classic does not support MakeCode. It has an 8-bit 32u4 MCU which is comparable to that on the Arduino UNO. It has neither the processing power nor enough memory to run MakeCode.
