Top Ten Adafruit Learning System Guides of 2013 #AdafruitTopTen

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.

No matter which way you look at it, the Adafruit Learning System has grown at an incredible rate. Here are ten popular guides from 2013 that helped ALS grow:

10. FLORA NeoGeo Watch – LED ring GPS navigation and timekeeping by Becky Stern


9. PianoGlove – Convert color to music with a wave of your finger by Collin Cunningham


8. LED Gummy Candies – Gum drop LEDs you can actually eat by Becky Stern


7. Flora+NeoPixel LED Skateboard Upgrade – Flora+NeoPixel skateboard upgrade for maximum ground effects by Noé & Pedro

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.
