I recently placed my first ordered and wanted to send feedback about my experience. First of all, yall (yea I am from Texas) do all the standard online shopping stuff very well. This would include easy to navigate website, plenty of shipping and payment options, timely communication and prompt shipping.
It is very clear that just making a sale is not the end goal. All the documentation, how-tos, open source software, videos and community interaction clearly proves that yall want a positive experience *using* the purchased items. Another small detail that illustrates this point is the flip top shipping boxes. As soon as I saw the box and noticed it was not the plain shipping box, I immediately had ideas how I could reuse it to help organize my stuff due to the flip top lid. I have found using plain shipping boxes don’t work so well and go straight to the recycle bin. This attention to detail only comes from people who are knowledgeable about pain points after the sale and are willing to spend the time and money for a better overall experience.
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, 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.
