Limor “Ladyada” Fried is hard-wired for success. In 2005, shortly after earning her Master of Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Fried started Adafruit Industries, an electronics hobbyist company selling DIY open-source electronic hardware kits.
She was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Entrepreneur in 2012 (of 15 finalists, she was the only female) and was the first female engineer featured on the cover of Wired. In 2014, Inc. 5000 ranked Adafruit number 11 in the top 20 USA manufacturing companies and number one in New York City.
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.
