(Keep in mind this is coming from a mechanical engineer who had to take “Introduction to Electronics” twice…)
Have no idea where else to post this, but spent some time this weekend with various new components from Adafruit and elsewhere and as I worked my way through various documentation and product pages I realized how much effort and thought has gone into everything. For me, it’s great to have a place to go where nothing is too trivial.
Thanks to the crew at Adafruit – Nice to have you guys out there doing what you do!
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.
