I’ve been a forum member for a little over a year now and I’m constantly amazed at the amount of talented people on this forum who go out of their way to help new people getting into electronics find their way around. I know i’ve been one to ask a lot of boneheaded questions, but despite that I’ve still received a lot of help and learned a lot from the advice i’ve received.. I wanted to personally thank Westfw, Entropy, Zener, adafruit (and a couple others who’s name escapes me at the moment) for taking their time to help me and all the other new guys to the club. I love this place.
rizla420 thanks for the kind words and support! The Adafruit forums are a place we work very hard for everyone to get help and enjoy, thank you and special thanks to all the contributors! We will be adding more features and more cool stuff to the forums soon!

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.
