The Hackaday SuperConference is a gathering of hardware hackers, builders, engineers and enthusiasts. It’s halfway between an industry conference and a “Bring-a-Hack” get-together…but extended into a 2-day event.
SuperCon 2016 will take place November 5th and 6th (2016) in Pasadena, CA. Talks and workshops will cover hardware, engineering, creativity in technical design, product design, prototyping (and more) and will be set against a backdrop of a new creative space, the Supplyframe DesignLab. We will also be utilizing the Los Angeles College of Music, right next door!
Similar to last year, we will announce the winners of the 2016 Hackaday Prize! The prize took on a new format this year and we cannot wait to see the grand prize winners. This will take place on Saturday, prior to the SuperCon evening program.

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.
