SparkFun CEO Glenn Samala Interview – As a photographer at SparkFun for the past six years, I have had the privilege of documenting a wealth of inspirational projects, and the honor of getting to know the people behind them. This is a perspective I want to share with the world. It is my pleasure to introduce Deep Thoughts and Awkward Pauses. This is a series of interviews where we pick the brains of influential and creative members of our community. These casual conversations are designed to give you a deeper insight into the mind and environments that produce projects and decisions that shape our future. The series is hosted by resident funion Pearce Melcher. I think Pearce is a rad bro and I hope you feel the same. Do you know of a maker who you think should be interviewed? Let us know in the comments.
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.
