You’ve got a hot new product, ready to sell – You’re a pro now! But part of that professionalism is making sure you have signed versions of all your drivers. If you’re using a FTDI or Cypress or SiLabs chip to do USB, you might already have a signed driver that comes with it.
If not, its an extra step and expense that will make your life (and your customer’s lives!) much easier. These are my notes as I signed a Circuit Playground CDC driver file, made an installer, then signed that installer
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.
