Earlier last month we announced the Shorty Awards Nominating Board. We’re excited to announce that the Board has chosen several finalists for the 6th Annual Shorty Awards. Just a reminder, this year we’ve increased our total number of finalists per category to 7: 3 of those finalists are chosen by the Shorty Awards Nominating Board, and the other 4 will be nominated by you (you can nominate anyone right now with a tweet).
Although I am nominated individually in the same category, I’m really rooting for Adafruit. =D
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.
