Google Summer of Code to again include BeagleBoard.org mentorship
Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for open source projects. BeagleBoard.org has been selected as one of the mentoring organizations for the program, meaning students who wish to contribute to the project have an opportunity to get paid for doing so this summer. Student applications will be accepted March 10-21. More information can be found in this blog post at BeagleBoard.org or the GSoC program home page.
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.
