Arduino – Paul Stoffregen- @paulstoffregen Thank you!

Adafruit 4655

Adafruit And The Arduinos At Maker Faire | Hackaday.

…they lowered the bar to entry into microcontroller programming and opened up a market to MILLIONS of people. They’ve sold roughly 3 million boards over the last several years. Along the way, hundreds of startups have built derived or related products. Numerous developers have adopted a practice of publishing software in Ardino’s library format.

Maybe it’ll always seem childish in your opinion, but from where I’m standing, creating a huge market and enabling many millions of people to do things they previous couldn’t do, or couldn’t do nearly so easily, hardly seem’s like child’s play.

Paul has always captured the essence of Arduino in a very efficient way, thank you.

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.

  1. Don’t forget Paul’s awesome contributions to the Arduino IDE, libraries, and excellent Teensy board designs–those are worth a thank you too!
