Say hi to Phillip Burgess our new senior designer at Adafruit :)
Everyone, give Phillip Burgess a warm welcome – he’s joining us at Adafruit to do a lot of cool things as a “senior designer” 🙂
Phillip Burgess’ interests and career have spanned technology and art for decades. He’s been an occasional contributor at Hack a Day, curates the VintageCG channel on YouTube, and his gamut of work has ranged from illustrating gaming manuals to developing satellite mapping software. His first project for Adafruit was Adalight, and there’s lots more cool stuff in the pipeline 🙂
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
