If you grew up with computers in the early 90’s you might have been exposed to the demoscene and its amazing combination of artistic talent and programming skill. Demos are small demonstrations of graphics programming, art, and music which together form an amazing piece of art that is created in real-time on a computer. NVScene is a modern demoscene party that’s meant to bring to the US the excitement of the large European demoscene parties. This event will be a part of the GPU Technology Conference hosted by NVIDIA from March 17th-20th in San Jose, California.

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.
