“Arduino 101* discontinuance” #makerbusiness #freearduino @arduinoorg

Adafruit 2577

Intel® Curie End-of-Life Scheduled |Intel Communities – “Arduino 101* discontinuance.”

Intel has announced the end-of-life timeline for the Intel® Curie™ module, and will discontinue manufacturing Arduino 101* development boards, powered by the Intel Curie module. Intel is actively working with alternative manufacturers to continue to make the Arduino 101* development board available to the market. To help customers manage through the Arduino 101* discontinuance, Intel will support last time orders of Arduino 101* products through September 17, 2017 and will fulfill those orders through December 17, 2017. Software support for Arduino 101* and other Intel Curie-based development boards will continue to be provided through the Arduino IDE available for download from There are no further software releases of the Intel® Curie™ Open Developer Kit (ODK) planned. The current level of community forum-based support for Intel Curie products will continue to be available from Intel through September 15, 2017. After September 15, 2017, Intel will make its online resources available for review only and maintain availability to the Intel Curie community until June 15, 2020. Files licensed under open source licenses will continue to be generally available in binary and source code on GitHub.

Ok, so my opinion is that it’s less about sales and more about the direction and leadership of the “new” Arduino (or lack of). What is INTEL going to do? Invest, develop, and release a ton of Arduino branded hardware and have the new CEO of Arduino Federico Musto “Ph.D” in press releases with INTEL and speaking at conferences with INTEL? There still is not an Arduino Foundation, which was promised by Arduino, there are missing and incomplete files for products that Arduino claims are “Open source.” ELEKTOR Magazine says “Confidence in the personalities who wield power at Arduino now seems to be badly damaged” & “This ongoing soap opera does nothing to build confidence in the future direction of this important development platform.”

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, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
