Adafruit had our first offsite meeting of 2010. We’re working on a ton of new features to the site, forums, “ask an engineer”, citizen engineer, kits and more. We’re also creating the roadmap for our 2010 line up of new products in the wonderful world of open source hardware. We has some crazy goals, we’re looking forward to the challenges ahead. Our method of offsite is to climb rocks and between turns jot down what we need to do in the next 12 months to make 2010 an amazing year. If you’re in the NYC and like climbing check out Brooklyn Boulders (pictured above)…


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  1. Please post your roadmap, would love to see what you have planned. Can’t wait for your next MonoClock project. We won’t hold you to it! But it’s great to compare to a baseline in future.

    Reminds me of the Rock Wall at Sega in Las Vegas. Fantastic climb, even for a chair bound dba.

  2. we likely will not be posting a roadmap soon, it’s not even close to being in any format to post 🙂

  3. I like your way of doing business 🙂

  4. Just curious, how many people work for Adafruit these days?

  5. @J – a couple full time and a few part time.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
