It has been an absolutely amazing year for the Adafruit Learning System. Here are some fun stats:
- In 2013, a whopping 242 guides were written, to bring the total guides up to 384 as of this post.
- Our total visits grew by 292% compared to last December!
- 24 hours-a-day we have anywhere from 200-300 people actively viewing ALS
- We had two visitors from Antarctica
- We had visitors from nearly every country in the world, with the least page views coming from Wallis and Futuna.
