Codecademy co-founders, Ryan Bubinski and Zach Sims, discuss growth and a new Codecademy:
Two years ago, we started building a product that would help teach people the skills they needed to succeed in a digital world. As more than 24 million people took Codecademy courses on our web and iOS platforms, we too learned and grew. Now, we’re excited to show you our latest project — a new Codecademy designed from the ground up, aimed to help you learn skills hands-on, with real projects, and constant feedback. Better yet, the new Codecademy experience helps to connect you with the real skills you’ll need to succeed in today’s workplace.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
