Getting a classroom full of computers up and running with the Arduino IDE can take a significant portion of any workshop’s time (don’t get me started on Turkish Windows 8), and sometimes you just need to load your code on the go, away from your home machine! Try Codebender, which now has support for Adafruit FLORA, GEMMA, and Trinket! Bookmark it as another tool in your Arduino-compatible arsenal, and read more about it on the Adafruit Learning System.
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.
