Hey folks, Becky, Ladyada, pt and the Adafruit team is taking Wednesday off for our LIVE shows 7/22/2015, this means there are no live shows that day. We’re going to rest up and recharge by absorbing and metabolizing solar energy from yellow stars like your planets’s Earth’s sun and we’ll see you next week for some amazing LIVE wearables, SHOW AND TELL and ASK AN ENGINEER.
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.
