Another long night for the Adafruit Elves, patiently picking apart the latest “Don’t Ask, It’s Not Out Yet”. 🙂 I’m often curious how other people in big cities make the most of their typically limited home working space. Personally I like working at home. Easy access to Diet Coke, my favorite tea, and a lethargic Shetland warming my feet beneath my desk … nice benefits to have this very cold feeling winter. I try to make the most of every meter of my limited workspace (Paris is hardly the cheapest place to live), but there are times when it’s just tough to do the tasks at hand with 0.5m² of uncluttered work space at your disposal. I’ll be moving myself in the coming months and will also get a dedicated office (since eating beside a pick and place sounds cool, but really just isn’t) … but every engineer and serious hobbiest still needs a little workbench somewhere at home for those late nights hacking away at something. I’m always curious to see other people’s personal workspace, so why not post some links to your own in the comments below!
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.
