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.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
