The list of apps and websites compiled by BetaNYC here on GitHub include municipal government data feeds, safety data, media highlights, and of course a slew of “citizen built tools,” my favorite compilation.
In leu of an official CitiBike open data portal. Citizens are building their own open data systems. This is a collection of official and unofficial CitiBike NYC apps or tools. ( On Bike Share data tools and visualizations you will find a collection of other bike share tools and apps. A majority of them are open source. )
If you are a technical minded and want to join an email list dedicated to Citi Bike/BikeNYC hack, join the CitiBike Hacker email list.
Hat-tip to Dylan Felix for telling me about this list.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
