Another Example of Where “Fail Quickly” Would Have Helped

Another Example of Where “Fail Quickly” Would Have Helped.

“Fail Quickly” is a term I learned almost a year ago.  It’s a great two-word mantra to keep in you mind, and describes a philosophy of design that states that you need to prototype early, and find all the problems you didn’t think about initially.  Then you can iterate quickly, and get closer to the ideal solution.  For me personally, I will have a new sub-bullet below Fail Quickly, and that will be:  Fail Quickly on representative hardware.  One other thing that’s great about this term is that it reminds you that you shouldn’t be afraid to fail.  In fact, it tells you to go out and fail!  But do it quickly, so you can get those failures out of the way early in your design cycle and move on to successes!


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.
