About 63,000 posts! Around 36 posts per day on average! We’ll check back in later next year and see how it’s going! We offer free, around the clock support to all of our customers in the Adafruit forums – if you need help, this is your first stop!
It’s also a good time to reiterate the “rules” in the forums and here, our weekly chat and on the blog. They’re not really rules, just a handy list of things you can expect when you participate on the Adafruit sites. Our goal is to support everyone from all skill levels to hang out here and have fun. Adafruit is a safe place where beginners can get help and show off their projects. We were all beginners once 🙂
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
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
