I’m happy to announce that the Arduino family is now bigger: Priya Kuber (twitter, site) is going to help us out on our blogging queue as well as managing several internal projects. She is living in New Dehli, and has fallen in love for electronics & tinkering at the age of 12 in her fathers’ workshop at home. She is also the co-founder of 9circuits, one of our indian distributor.
Young, yet well experienced, she is familiar with coding and in dealing with online communities. Above all, I am challenged to share the Arduino Blog with a woman (in a man-oriented world like electronics is) from India (one of the most relevant coutries in terms of electronics and components supply). Stay tuned for new, upcoming surprises!

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.
