25 Years History of #Linux in 5 Minutes, by @linuxquestions
Jeremy Garcia of LinuxQuestions.org and Bad Voltage (podcast) delivers 25 years of Linux in five minutes: starting with Linux’s first steps as “just a hobby” for creator Linus Torvalds, to its staggering popularity today with 13,500 developers from more than 1,300 companies and 22 million lines of code.
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.
