“Ask an engineer” chat – 10pm ET, tonight – Saturday 9/12/2009
It’s that time again! Join us for our “Ask an engineer” chat – 10pm ET, tonight! – Saturday 9/12/2009. We’ answer your questions about electronics, our kits and more! At the end of the chat (11pm ET) we will give away a
prize too, just get the right answer first to our electronics-related trivia question and you could win!
We have a new section of the Adafruit site call “Chat” you can stop in there at 10 pm ET tonight for chat + video, or kick it old school and visit via IRC. Instructions for IRC are on the Adafruit chat page.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
