Join us! LIVE! ASK AN ENGINEER 12/13/17 8pm! And interview with Matt Berggren! Matt runs the EAGLE & Tinkercad teams at Autodesk. Prior to Autodesk, Matt worked for Supplyframe, the evil overlords that rule Hackaday. He’s been in electronics design and eCAD software since the days of PCAD / Accel and was part of the core team at Altium which drove the transformation from Protel to Altium Designer. Matt’s background in electronics goes back 30+ years beginning with model rocket gear, radios and radio equipment, RC vehicles and a lot more dangerous stuff he’s reluctant to talk about. His career programming began with the Commodore PET. Professionally he’s designed all manner of consumer products, mil-spec / aerospace designs, wireless systems, and just about any sort of sensor / control module you can imagine.
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.
