A special thanks to Becky Stern from @adafruit @bekathwia #wearables
Hey folks, it is with some sadness, but also with a TON of excitement that we’re are now wishing Becky excellent thoughts for her next big thing she takes on – Becky let us know that this was her last month after 4 years as Director of Wearables, some of us have worked with Becky from almost 10 years, it’s not goodbye, it’s a “we can’t wait to see what you do next”. We are so very proud of our work together.
There will not be “Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern” this week or going forward 🙂 However, we’ll be adding more shows as usual with more people looking to make as big of a dent as Becky has in the wearables and DIY universe.
Want to join an adventure at Adafruit? Post your projects, make a tutorial, tweet them, make some videos, come on our show and tell, we’ll find each other and do some cool things together! It’s pretty much how we met Becky and many of the talented people @ Adafruit and how we’d like to get to know you too 🙂

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
