Announcing a new book – Getting Started with Adafruit Trinket by Mike Barela published by Maker Media. Mike tell us more 🙂

Trinket is a great microcontroller – it provides much of the power you might use in an Arduino application in a smaller size and lower cost. This got me started building Trinket-based projects (rather easily which was great). When a discussion of a book was brought up, I thought it would be a natural. Not just because a number of project tutorials had been written (which helps). Trinket is a bit different from other microcontrollers, from the software, driver, libraries, and what might be encountered on use. Nearly all of the benefits and “gotchas” on Trinket have come out either through working on one or posting in the Adafruit forums. I thought a reference providing a “one stop” resource on Trinket’s use would be highly beneficial for both new Makers and those with experience on other devices. It follows the Maker zen, so to speak, provide the ability to focus on the concept and not have to dig into a fistful of datasheets and arcane code to even do the basics. You have the information to go from idea to project, which is a much more satisfying process. The book provides the reader with additional tools for the Making toolbox and ideas on “what are the possibilities” which is something we all look to do.

Sign up, book is coming out soon!


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.
