“We are what we celebrate” on newsstands May/June 2017 @make #MakeV57 @adafruit
“We are what we celebrate” on newsstands May/June 2017 – this month is special for us at Adafruit, Limor “Ladyada” our founder and engineer is on the cover of MAKE Magazine volume 57 with a featured article about Adafruit. Every few months we take photos of what’s on the newsstands, what and who on the cover of magazine is who we are celebrating a culture and society, covers of magazines matter. We can collectively be the change we want to see in the world – previous posts here and photo set on Flickr here.
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.
