RIGHT NOW! 2pm to 3pm ET – FutureCast: open-source hardware and MAKE-ing the future
Update this is going on now! Phillip will be doing a call/chat live from Adafruit Industries “FutureCast: open-source hardware and MAKE-ing the future” – join Jerry Mchalski and Phil in a one hour conversation as they discuss topics such as open-source hardware, new hacker-spaces opening up, and the Fabber and Maker movements as they continue to develop in the coming years. The conversation will take place Thursday, February 11th from 11:00am to 12:00pm PST. Toll Free number: 1-800-868-1837 – International number: 1-404-920-6440 – Participant code: 548723# . We will turn on the Livestream feed as well (located here) during the call, we may do a quick tour of the Adafruit factory, we’ll see if it works out 🙂
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.
