(Translated via Google)… When I was in the Elektor the first time by the Raspberry Pi ‘ve read, was immediately clear: Such a thing I must have! After many months of waiting until the “market” and then again a few weeks to ship from China was finally here, huh’m happier now Raspi owners. After the first few games then had a case once ran slowly to the Computerchen also use the “serious” can. Because let’s face it: Anyone who likes always a bunch of cables and a small, bare board and now a Steckernetzeil ‘NER keyboard back and herschleppen …?

Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @

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, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.

  1. Google translate is really strange. This is a real translation, with greetings from Germany:

    Als ich damals in der Elektor das erste Mal vom Raspberry Pi gelesen habe, war sofort klar: So ein Ding muss ich haben! 

    When I first read in a computer magazine of the raspberry pi, was immediately obvious: I need to get one!

    Nach vielen Monaten Wartezeit bis zur “Marktreife” und dann nochmal einigen Wochen bis das Schiff aus China endlich hier war, bin nich nun glücklicher Raspi-Besitzer. 

    After many months of “time to market” and then another few weeks until the ship from China was finally here, I am now finally happy owner.

     den ersten Spielereien musste dann mal langsam ein Gehäuse ran, um das Computerchen auch “ernsthaft” benutzen zu können.

    After some fiddling I wanted a case  to use the little computer “for real”. 

     Denn mal ehrlich: Wer mag schon immer einen Haufen Kabel und eine kleine, nackte Platine inzwischen einem Steckernetzeil und ‘ner Tastatur hin- und herschleppen…?

    Because frankly: who likes to lug around a lot of cables and a small naked PCB with a wallwart and a keyboard?
