Dear LadyAda and Mr. LadyAda – and all of Adafruit Industries:
It is your fault !
Yep – and don’t try to deny it !
You now have a new, loyal customer here.
Well, OK, I admit it …
maybe it’s my fault too.
I just binge watched the last six months of Ask an Engineer, with a healthy dose of Ms. Stern’s Wearable Electronics and Mr. Ruiz’ 3D Printing for good measure. Now, I’m getting food ready and prepping my comfy chair for another round of six months more.
For over 55 years, I’ve been doing electronics. And computers since the ’70’s. Nope, not tooting my horn – nor am I grumbling about disappearing gray-white hair. I mention time lived because the tech world, with me in it, has spun many many revolutions. During all that time, I have never seen such enthusiasm, support, positivity, and selfless encouragement of others to become more creative and productive as you all have been doing. Perhaps with one exception: John F. Kennedy and NASA getting humanity to the moon.
So, see – it is your fault after all !
Your almost not-of-this-world service and support is exemplary.
How could I not become a customer ?
Now please stop reading these Pre-Historic Nerd ramblings – and get back to work making Adafruit even more successful !
Sincerely and with much Techy-Love :))

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.
