NEW PRODUCTS – @arrow_dot_com Presents: Back to School with LadyAda Packs
So maybe it’s not “back to school” season any more – but here at Adafruit, we like to think that it’s always a good time to learn something new, which we guess means that everywhere we go is a proverbial school that we’re perpetually going back to.
To celebrate the continual season, we partnered with our good friends at Arrow Electronics to release custom packs of goodies called Arrow Presents: Back to School with LadyAda. Three packs are available for users with varying degrees of experience in electronics.
For beginners, there’s the Arduino Solder Free Pack. If you don’t know how to solder, the world of Arduino can be an intimidating one. This pack is designed to be solder-free, so even folks who don’t want to use a soldering iron, or aren’t ready to learn new soldering skills, can still pick up an Arduino and start to understand the code and complexities of single board computing.
