Recently, Tim O’Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media, and Dale Dougherty, founder of MAKE, sat down to discuss our upcoming Hardware Innovation Workshop, May 15-16, 2012. The discussion here (and the thrust of the event) is on the innovations coming out of the maker movement and the people behind these emerging, game-changing technologies. Many of the leaders in this movement will be at this event, the first of its kind for MAKE, happening in the lead up to Maker Faire Bay Area (May 19-20). The event in geared towards introducing the wider business world to maker-developed technologies and how these technologies can have an impact on the future of manufacturing and the wider economy.
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.
