Arduino is here to stay @arduino #makerfaire #MFNY17 @makerfaire

Over 6 years ago I wrote “Why the Arduino Won and Why It’s Here to Stay” for MAKE Magazine. Following the maker movement for 15+ years in its many forms, community, people, companies, hardware and software – a lot has changed, and some things have not. The idea of Arduino, easy to use physical computing, is not only here to stay, it’s better than it’s ever been. This weekend at World Maker Faire NYC 2017 Massimo Banzi gave the yearly “State of Arduino” – announced were: Arduino’s commitment to open source, open development and their community. He also announced arduino.cc as the official website and the launch of two new MKR form factor Arduinos – slides here.

Thank you Arduino community for what you’ve done for Adafruit. We’re thankful we were (and are) able to contribute to some of Arduino’s successes as well.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I don’t think that new Arduino you’re standing next to will fit in my Altoids box. 🙁
