Tony D. in town for @makerfaire @tdicola @adafruit
Tony D. stopped by to get ready for what will be a fantastic weekend!
Here’s what he had to say:
Hi I’m Tony D. and work on creative engineering for Adafruit. I create a lot of code, guides, and content that help people use Adafruit parts with hardware like Raspberry Pi, Arduino, CircuitPython and more. I’m out at Adafruit headquarters this week to check out World Maker Faire and can’t wait to see the fun makers and projects there. If you’re at World Maker Faire check out a talk I’m giving on Sunday, “Make With Python”, where I’ll explore and demo different hardware that can help you get started coding projects more easily with the Python programming language. Like another well-known Tony I have an arc reactor on my chest, but mine is built from Adafruit parts and runs Python code!
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.
