Adafruit forum updates, new look & feel, new features and more!
We are thrilled to release our new forum updates. Better navigation, a lot of back end improvements, RSS feeds and flexible areas for us to do contests / promote great projects from Adafruit customers. We’ve spent a long time trying to make the Adafruit customer forums one of the best places to share information about our kits, electronics, open source hardware and each of journeys in to the world world of engineering.
So now is a good time to reiterate the “rules”. They’re not really rules, just a handy list of things you can expect when you participate here. Our goal is to support everyone from all skill levels to hang out here and have fun.
Adafruit, its customers and community of electronics enthusiasts want to encourage the kind of discussions that we all want. A positive, helpful tone that maximizes the sharing of information.
Posts and comments in the Adafruit forums should be:
Adding information, asking researched questions, sharing cool stuff or
A well-reasoned critique / criticism
Comments and posts should not be:
Spam, attacks on people, projects, or
Mean spirited, not courteous to others or the Adafruit team
That’s it! Same “rules” as our comments on the blog. If you’ve been a “lurker” – the Adafruit forums are a safe place where you ask your questions and get help with your electronics project, come on down! We’ll do our best to make your time here well spent. Please post any comments or suggestions, we’re still tweaking some stuff too!

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.
