In NYC, Creative Tech Week Begins This Friday @creativetechwk
With over 300 ‘experts’ from dozens of fields intersecting technology today, Creative Tech Week is “an industry-wide gathering for the Creative Technology field, providing a meeting place and showcase for our products and talent.” It begins this Friday in America’s most populous city and includes presentations, performances, installations, and more, covering art, music, interactive environments, Burning Man, 3D-printing, coding, advertising – you name it, and there’s probably a session during the Week for you!
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.
