We are very, very happy to announce the opening of the newGeekDad Community, which you can find at GeekDad/Hotwired.com. There are some special features that we are extremely excited to show off. For all its time, GeekDad has been about community. A community of writers sharing their experiences and interests as geeks and parents with each other, and the readers. And we get a lot of great feedback from all of you: emails, tweets, messages on Facebook, and comments on the posts. But it’s also been obvious for a long time that our relationship with you could be made so much better. We needed to build a true community around GeekDad.
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.
