What is Oryng?
Oryng is an enthusiastic group of passionate individuals and organizations that have been touched by the Wiring Framework, and are working together to curate and expand its usage.
What is the Wiring Framework?
You probably have seen digitalWrite or delay somewhere, which has been popularized by the company called Arduino. The “language” that Arduino uses to program its boards is called the Wiring Framework.
What needs to be done?
Despite the ever-increasing popularity of the Framework, it has never been formally maintained in a way that benefits all that use the Framework. The mission of Oryng is to curate and expand the Framework, and make sure that the changes and additions to it are universally acceptable by both users and the companies that develop technology that utilize the Framework. In addition, there are countless “libraries” that need to be wrangled and maintained. Part of our efforts will be to curate these amazing libraries that people have painstakingly developed.
What can you do to help?
The best way to help right now is to join our mailing list. We want to hear from you what you think needs to happen with the Framework.
First up, Arduino is trademark that is owned by the Arduino team, second, what the what?
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.
