We will not use intrusive privacy violating social networking features malware on Adafruit (see above)
We think hundreds of pixels worth of share buttons, screen real estate blocked out for weird malware Facebook apps and all of that nonsense would take away from your experience here at Adafruit, so we will not be adding any buttons, connects, “Likes”, “Diggs” or “Tweet this” on our site. You’re here to have a great time on your electronics journey! Traffic is going great, over 1m page views a month consistently and growing 10% or so per month – we do not want to ruin a good a things and we respect your privacy. Perhaps this isn’t the ideal choice for everyone, but we think it’s the right one for us and our customers. You have a lot of choices when it comes to where you get your electronics we hope small things like this help you decide where to get them – if you like what we’re doing we hope you’ll let your friends know without all of those intrusive buttons and social graph thingies 🙂

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.
