REMINDER – Show and tell is now WEDNESDAY NIGHTS at 7:30pm ET / ASK AN ENGINEER is now WEDNESDAY NIGHTS 8pm ET !
Ladyada has been doing our live electronic show, “ASK AN ENGINEER” for over 4 years, every Saturday night. As far as we know it’s the longest running live electronics show on the net. Later we added SHOW AND TELL and that’s been going on for the last 2+ years on Google+ Hangouts On Air, it’s our favorite 30 minutes of the week when makers around of the world share their projects.
Some folks requested during the week or earlier, there’s never a perfect time and date for everyone, but it’s all recorded now. That said, we’re moving both shows to Wednesday, it will be joining “Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern” also on Wednesday. Why are we moving the show(s) to Wednesday nights? Having the shows mid-week and earlier in the night will allow us to have more guests from the world of making and have more of our own Adafruit staff on the show. It also means Ladyada can work on electronics all weekend and maybe, possibly, take a day off once and awhile too 🙂
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. 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.
