Rehearsal for @oreillynext – Limor “Ladyada” Fried broadcasting live and more from @adafruit factory

We think this is will be the first and only HD broadcast at an event from an open-source hardware factory ran by a pink haired lady 🙂

We did a mobile set up to do a factory tour, it went great.

If anyone is the new face of American manufacturing, it might well be Limor Fried. Visiting her combination design studio/manufacturing floor/warehouse in Manhattan’s SOHO district is an eye-opening tour of what becomes possible when a brilliant engineer has access to on demand prototyping and manufacturing, easy access to a rich supply chain and logistics, and a powerful media platform that uses education to create demand for her products. Adafruit Industries shows what small business can look like in the 21st century: open, networked, committed to improving the lives of its customers, with value-add based on design, personality, and community.

Next: Economy
November 12–13, 2015  •  San Francisco, CA

Technology is rapidly upending business models, companies, and entire industries. No company, no job is immune to disruption.
Every industry and every organization needs to transform itself…or fade away. This is the first dedicated event to address the technology transformation that is underway, its impact on workers, and help attendees prepare their organizations to succeed in the next economy. Just about everyone’s asking WTF? (“What’s the future?”), but answers have been hard to come by.


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.
