Download PDF Guides from the Adafruit Learning System #backtoschool
We are adding new tutorials, and converting old tutorials, to the new Adafruit Learning System nearly every day. We are also adding new functionality to the system every day. One of our favorite features is the automated PDF creation tool. When you load any of our guides, and click on the ‘Download PDF’ link in the left sidebar, our system automatically generates a fresh PDF of the entire guide.
With that in mind, we feel this is a great tool for educators. Being able to download and print the latest guide allows you to focus on teaching the class, instead of creating learning materials. If any student works on one of our projects months, or years from now, they will be able to go to the associated guide on learn.adafruit.com, and download a fresh guide over again.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
