Whoops, forgot to post this up. We didn’t turn on Google Analytics until March 1st, 2009 – but here are some 2009 #s.
While we don’t have advertisers (and never will, that’s our promise) – it’s good to see more and more interest in electronics, measuring web traffic is just one metric. A lot makers who are thinking about starting a site or kit business ask us what type of traffic to expect or shoot for – we don’t mind sharing ours. From beginner to advanced we work hard each day to create a fun place to share your journey on the road of learning electronics, we’re glad some of you enjoy it! We’d like to thank all the makers out there who send in their projects and share how-tos with us to post on the Adafruit site – as well as all the great photos in the Adafruit Flickr pool.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
