As some of you have seen on Show and Tell and 3D Hangouts, I’m currently traveling and working on CircuitPython from Europe. The picture above is from the model shop of the Sagrada Familia, a beautiful, unfinished church in the heart of Barcelona. The model shop is used to prototype the remaining portions of the church.
My girlfriend and I have a couple weeks remaining here in Europe and I wanted to invite folks to meet me. The rest of the trip includes London, a visit to Reading’s rLab maker space, western Ireland, Dublin and Berlin.
If we meet up I’d love to chat about making, Adafruit, CircuitPython and Arduino. I have a few prototype boards with me that ladyada has designed so you could get a sneak peek. I’d also love to see all of the projects you have done!
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.
