Today at the Adafruit Facebook page, I shared a couple of questions for our community based on conversations we were having back at Adafruit:
What music do you listen to when working on projects? And do you listen to different tunes for coding/modeling/computer work vs soldering/hardware hacking/building?
The responses there as well as at the Adafruit Google+ Community has been a lot of fun (and a great place to grab leads for my Spotify queue). I particularly liked this link shared by Adam Mayer — WorkMusicWork:
Music found on bandcamp suitable for listening to while coding. Submissions welcome!
That page has my totally productive divided attention!

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.
