Emily Gaudette at Newsweek interviewed Naomi Wu –

Being attacked from all sides by male engineers has made Wu hesitant to demonstrate pride. But it hasn’t deterred her from working toward her dream. She wants to spread the maker mindset and promote a local tech culture unique to China.

For innovators like Wu, the future isn’t necessarily in coding, app development or artificial intelligence; it’s in the construction of hardware, wearable tech and tangible projects. She calls Shenzhen ”the Silicon Valley of hardware,” adding on her Patreon page that “chances are the phone or computer you are reading this on was made here—maybe even by a girl I grew up with.”

On Patreon, Naomi hit her goal last night, and is is now able to switch to part-time hours as a developer so she can spend more time building projects and shooting videos (we are a patreon).


If we’re really a community of makers, this is an opportunity to celebrate, elevate, and amplify each other’s work, we’re all given opportunities to do so. Phil & I made some suggestions to MAKE (Dale), we’re only one voice, we added ours.

We’ll be talking about this on our weekly show ASK AN ENGINEER, you can join us then or in Discord.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.

Join 32,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

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.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
