Udacity – Free Classes. Awesome Instructors. Inspiring Community. via Jeelabs.



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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.

  1. Wow…people looking for an education should grab this while it’s free. At some point a revenue model will need to kick in, and they’ll start asking for your Visa card; though I’m sure the price will still be orders of magnitude below existing universities. Perhaps we’ll look back at this someday as the “Napster” era of free online courses.

    It works. Several years ago I was able to teach myself Verilog and basic FPGA design strictly with what professors left on their web sites. I didn’t even bother with regular textbooks on the topic (which ran $100 or so – more than the cost of an FPGA dev board).

  2. Audrey Watters has a review of Udacity’s CS101 class up at her blog …
    http://www.hackeducation.com/2012/04/14/udacity-cs101/
    she did not complete the class – a very common occurrence with online learning
    The post does ask (but not explore) reasons why, and she says she will continue to try to learn to program with this sort of course.

    hmm.
