Atom text editor has official 1.0 release

This week the open source Atom text editor from Github had its official 1.0 release!  Atom is a programmer’s text editor that’s built on web technology like HTML5 and JavaScript.  This makes the editor easily portable to different platforms since it’s not tied to any particular native graphical interface.  I’ve used Atom a bit in earlier releases and am excited to see how it works with the latest 1.0 release and its many performance improvements.

Also check out the blog post to learn about the history of Atom and some plans for the future now that the core functionality is in place with the 1.0 release.  Be sure to watch the hilarious retro promotional video that looks like it was pulled out of a time capsule from the 50’s and 60’s.  There’s an awesome Atom ‘computer’ with lots of knobs, buttons, blinky lights, and even an UNTZtrument!

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.
