Hackaday is having another meet up on January 23rd at Pivotal Labs – this time you can show of your project as well! There are still some demo spots open so make sure to submit if you would like to share. The meetup page is here and the general event page is here.
No matter what your goals and plans are for the New Year, we encourage you to BUILD MORE COOL STUFF and then BRING IT TO HACKADAY NYC!
We love to see what you’re working on! That’s why we’re kicking off our first Meetup of the New Year with a DEMO NIGHT on Monday, January 23rd!
THERE’S STILL TIME TO SUBMIT YOUR DEMO!
Whether you’ve recently made something awesome or if you have a favorite project from your past work, we invite you to share!
If you’d like to participate, please reach out to Shayna and tell her about your project and if you have A/V needs. Makers will get at least 5 minutes to show-and-tell. We’ll try to showcase as many projects as time permits.
We will also feature our open session of lightning talks. Please feel welcome to ping Shayna if you’d like to make a general announcement to the community. A sign-up sheet will also be available at the check-in desk on the night of the Meetup.

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.
