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 publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
