HARDWARE HANGOUT with James “Laen” Neal from OSH Park! @laen @oshpark #makerbusiness
Come meet and ask questions with James “Laen” Neal from OSH Park! OSH Park is a community printed circuit board (PCB) service. OSH park take designs from lots of people, put them all together on a panel and then order the panel from a fab.
Since they’re all splitting the panel setup cost, this lets them make circuit boards inexpensively.
You’ve seen these purple boards everywhere 🙂
This service grew out of the DorkbotPDX PCB Order run by @laen and now comprises of a two-layer panel every other day, a four-layer panel every three weeks and a periodic two-layer medium run service for people needing more than 150 square inches of board.
Their boards are lead free, made in the USA, and amazing quality.

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.
