Adafruit is run by makers and creators. Musicians, photographers, engineers, videographers, coders, writers and more, we love DIY of all kinds. We think that our in-house music from Bartlebeats and Noe Ruiz is a big part of what makes Adafruit’s daily videos so much fun to watch, we think this so much that we released his debut album, Frequency, on gorgeous pink vinyl. We also worked with Infinity Shred on a limited edition blue vinyl pressing of their Long Distance LP, completed with an exclusive artist curated datadealer synth kit. We love music and we love sharing it.
We’re excited to share even more music from the Adafruit family with you, to help introduce more makers and creators into our community and to test out some new sounds and ideas on all of you.
Be sure to subscribe as we’ll be adding more and more audio content of our own, as well as sharing some of our own favourites from the wide and wonderful Soundcloud community.
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.
