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 publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
