Rei Vilo has put up a detailed project on Hackster.io on using TI’s new capacitive touch development kit. The kit comes with a MSP430FR2633 microcontroller that is the primary interface to the capacitive buttons. A CapTIvate Design Center GUI allows you to generate code for the MSP430FR2633. The MSP432 Launchpad in this project talks to the FR2633 via I2C.
Code for the project uses Energia, a popular, beginner friendly tool to program TI’s microcontrollers.

Nice work! This is a lot like my recent TIDesign, which uses the phone panel, haptics, and allows selection of I2C or UART comms to MSP432 as well as whether or not MSP432 DMA is used. The most recent UI state is saved in case of power failure for recall on restart.
