John Park in town for @makerfaire ! @adafruit @johnedgarpark
John Park is in NYC this week for some maker fun!
Here’s what he had to say:
I’m a maker — I build projects and share them via videos, live streaming, and learning guides. I marry different techniques, technologies, crafts, skills, and tools to build things. My hope is that my projects help people learn things that are helpful for their own creative/technological projects.
I’ve been here in NY this week to hang out with the awesome people at Adafruit, and to cook up projects and plans for some upcoming AdaBoxes!
I’m also excited to attend Maker Faire, and to give a talk on the inner workings of my Mystery Box projects, which will be at 11:30amon Sunday. I’ll also be part of a panel discussion on Saturday at 2pm on making videos for YouTube.

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.
