The journey begins here
FITC is the intersection between Creative Technologists, Designers, Developers and all-around awesome thinkers from various innovative industries across the globe. They converge every year in Toronto to connect, challenge, inspire, and to experience the cutting edge in design and technology.
This year we have 90 amazing presenters from around the world covering design, creativity, and technology, including talks about biohacking, remote-controlled cockroaches, a 98-year-old digital artist, the leading edge in neuroscience tech, an artist who offers professional kidnapping – and that’s just a fraction of this years talent.
Join us at FITC Toronto for…
Three full days, plus one optional day of pre-festival workshops
Over 90 presentations and panels
Over 1200 attendees from around the world
Making connections at the parties and evening events
The FITC Awards 2014
Eugene Andruszczenko, technology innovator and Adafruit customer, will be speaking. Go see him! And check out one of his latest project photos below.
Euguene describes the project as: “One of our new features is the inclusion of the Neo Pixel 16x Ring into out
There are loads of projects I work on. Most of them have something to do with interfacing devices that weren’t meant to be interfaced with 🙂
Sparky Jr. has been an on again off again ongoing project. It’s a pretty basic RGB LED controller for gaming enthusiasts. There are no additional parts (like drivers or ic chips) for controlling RGB LEDs, so it’s pretty basic to get into for anyone.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
