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. )

Hat-tip to Dylan Felix for telling me about this list.
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.
