“Introducing Skills” @DIY

Adafruit 142

“Introducing Skills” @DIY.

Today we’re launching an important new feature on DIY. We call it Skills.

We’re starting small with our first 8 Skills: Circuit Bender, Fort Builder, Gamer, Gardener, Instrument Maker, n00b, Rocketeer, and Weaver.

Skills are made of Challenges, which are awesome project ideas that Makers can solve by uploading photos and videos of their own inventions.

Each Challenge is paired with the most inspiring creative projects we could find on the web. These references teach techniques and generate big ideas for your own project. We think there’s a need for the very best of the web to be curated into an ultimate resource for Makers and parents – so we’ve collected the clearest how to’s and the coolest project ideas all in one spot. I also made a few myself.

We’re building Skills and Challenges around what the community is already making. So the Elastic Band Guitar made by Griffon will solve the “Make a String Instrument” Challenge and will become a reference for it too. As we continue to release more Skills (there are hundreds coming – a handful per week) we’ll be influenced by what you all are making on DIY. Our Skills will seek to represent and reward all the different kinds of creativity within the DIY community.

OK, stop reading and go make something awesome!

PS: Many of you might be wondering, specifically, how a Maker can “earn” a Skill. That’s coming really soon! Hang tight.
