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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
