Around 2012 I was inflicted with electronicsitis, mostly due to the ease of entry provided by Adafruit Industries’s Learning System.
Shortly thereafter I was self-prompted to make tangible things, as well as learn the basics of what it takes to include electronics in apps that I write. Now instead of just programming software for a computer screen, I am able to program hardware for real world physical interactions.
Even though I missed the first two-and-a-half years, I thank you so much for providing the individual a venue to showcase their projects via Show and Tell on Saturday nights.
Now that Show and Tell is on Wednesday, I hope you get to rock out your Saturday nights with some NIN or maybe even some ‘Boy’s Don’t Cry’ from The Cure?.
I wish you all the very best,
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.
