GoldenCheetah – The Open Source Fitness Data Analyzer
Open source enthusiasts know the agony of purchasing a piece of hardware only to find out just how difficult it is to access the data being collected on it. GoldenCheetah is an open source fitness analyzer that works with cycling, running and swimming data. GC is an all platform program able to read from a diverse range of hardware, fitness tracking sites and file formats. This is one of the most beautiful open source apps I have ever used. It is important to note that the coolest functionality is geared towards cycling. I had no trouble importing run and swim data from Garmin Connect (TCX, FIT, GPX) and Strava (GPX).
We believe that cyclists and triathletes should be able to download their power data to the computer of their choice, analyze it in whatever way they see fit, and share their methods of analysis with others.

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.
