The team at Adafruit has worked on a few packs and projects with our friends over at Google. Adafruit, for its part, will always be trying to play a role in a way that serves us and our community in the best way possible. And with that in mind, Google has asked us for our help in promoting one of their surveys to collect what we think is valuable information about makers everywhere.
This survey is entirely optional, but for those who would like to participate, we think the more information Google has the better they can support the community with content and products. So please feel free to fill this out, or not!
We at Google are interested in creating smart tools for Makers, and want to hear from you about what would be most helpful. As a thank you, we will share our findings back with the community so that you can learn more about Makers around the world.
Thanks for your input!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
