I just have a few positive comments about your site.
I am a 25-yr Intel programmer (C/C++/C#/Delphi), but new to Arduino/Netduino and new to OpenSource. My experiences with OpenSource in the past (for the most part) have been frustrating. My view is that I must make a living not play all day – althouhh we all like to play. I am very impressed with your site! It is so organized and thoughtfully done.
As a C# .NET developer in a large well-known IT supplier, I am so spoiled with Visual Studio and C# (those who do it, get what I am saying).
Because I now want to tinker in the world of Arduino/Netduino, for the last two weeks I have had to endure the minefield and mess found in the scattered world of Arduino. Your site is such a welcomed change to what I have seen so far. I am not sure if this because of the female roots of Adafruit (it may very-well be) but no matter the reason, I am very impressed. I have been around long enough to see the usual race-to-the-bottom-mindset, and it is refreshing in this day and age to see something done right! It is rare to find such a site these days (but there are a few).
I will be preparing some (work and user group) presentations in the next few months to expose other .NET developers (30 on my team, 30 in the user group) to Arduino and Netduino and I will gladly mention your company as a great place for buying products for learning and development.
Based on what I have seen so far, I have to say thanks for having the drive or conviction to build your business right!
Please feel free to share my comments with anyone, even online, but please do not include my email address.
I hope to start purchasing from you soon. It won’t be very much as I am just a hobbyist in this new world of Arduino, Netduino, but every customer counts developing or maintaining a brand.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
