We’re looking for a flexible, talented developer to help write the open-source code that makes our bots buzz and our applications rock. Your primary responsibility will be writing and maintaining the firmware that controls our machines. The job involves writing, testing, and releasing code for multiple boards and cores, as well as merging contributions by talented programmers from all over the world. You’ll also be helping to develop our end-user applications, and working on whatever crazy projects tomorrow brings. One day you might be writing computational geometry algorithms for multicore machines; the next, convincing an AVR core to play 4-part harmony on a stepper motor. There’s a little bit of everything.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
