Ask an engineer 1/2/2010 10pm ET – With special guest!
Join us for Ask an engineer 1/2/2010 10pm ET – With special guest, Amanda “w0z” – she’s an engineer (bio and analog electronics & engineering). We’ll talk about the clock enclosure she is designing with Adafruit (photos here) and we’ll answer your questions, have a trivia question, prize, all that. Mosfet the cat will say hi at the end of the chat and we’ll go over important ordering information (Adafruit is taking a post-holiday rest from 1/4 to 1/11).
Visit our new “chat” section on Adafruit at 10pm ET, Saturday nights
There will be a trivia question at the end of the night as always!
Lastly, if anyone can save a text log we’d appreciate it
Orders placed between 1/4/2010 and 1/11/2010 may take 4-5 business days to ship (back orders or in stock items). Adafruit is taking a one week winter break to recharge 🙂

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.
