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.

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  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!
