Army Cyber Institute @ArmyCyberInst visits @adafruit
A bunch of really smart folks from the Army Cyber Institute visited Adafruit to chat about all sorts of things, we even scored super-cool cyber badges!
THE ACI is a national resource for research, advice and education in the cyber domain, engaging army, government, academic, and industrial cyber communities to build intellectual capital and expand the knowledge base for the purpose of enabling effective army cyber defense and cyber operations.
We’ve known some of the officers for awhile, back from our visit to West Point a few years ago and Brent is a guest blogger on the Adafruit site. Thanks for the visit and the badges!

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.
