We launched our Amsterdam-based journalism platform De Correspondent in 2013 with a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign, raising $1.7 million from some 20,000 backers. We are now 60,000 members strong and still fiercely ad-free.
Our Dutch platform features in-depth articles, documentaries, and podcasts produced by journalists who are committed to collaborating with members on their chosen beat. Together, we cover stories every day that tend to escape the mainstream media’s radar because they don’t fit neatly into the drama of the 24-hour news cycle.
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.
