We have just pushed another great update to the Adafruit Learning System. We now have new author pages up and running. If you are viewing any guide, up on the top you will see a byline. Click on the name of the author to view their author page. See Ladyada’s author page here. This is a great way to discover new guides by the author, and also see what guides that author has collaborated in. If you like a bunch of guides by a particular author, subscribe to that author’s RSS feed and know when that author publishes new guides or pages.
Along with the author RSS feed, we also have an RSS feed for new guides. On the top black nav bar, right next to the search field you will see the RSS icon. Click on it for a link to the RSS feed. Or, just plug learn.adafruit.com/feed into your favorite RSS reader.

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.

Awesome news. This site is really taking shape. I’m having a bit of a tough time transitioning from the “old school” style that I’ve grown to love. Speaking of which, when might the fabulous and classic Arduino set of tutorials get transitioned to the new learning site? I’m concerned that the current RasPi “dessert specials” have bumped the Arduino “meat and potato” tutorials way down the to do list. I like to eat dessert for the main course every now and then, but in the long run it’s not so healthy 🙂
@ransomhall – thanks! the new tutorials are first since they’re new and we do not need to update to new IDEs, take new screenshots, etc. so the classics are getting added last. we’ll not only have them in the new system, but an additional set of arduino tutorials that we think you’re going to love 🙂
