NEW TUTORIAL – Continuous Integration, Arduino, and You
Bugs can be introduced into software very easily, and it takes quite a bit of effort to ensure that the 100+ Adafruit Arduino libraries compile cleanly. Luckily, there is an easy way to verify that your Arduino Libraries compile after every push to GitHub by using Travis CI.
What is Travis CI? Travis CI is an open source continuous integration service that automatically tests and builds your GitHub projects. The service is free for open source projects, and the setup is relatively painless.
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.
