What: FITC Toronto
Where: Hilton Toronto – 145 Richmond Street West, Toronto, ON Canada , M5H 2L2
When: April 27-April 29
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.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
