I am newly discovering Adafruit and I have watched
several of your new products videos, I really wanted to tell you how proud I
was watching a smart young woman running the show. I have truly never been
as inspired. Over the coarse of my entire life when asked “Who is your
hero”, who do I look up to or inspires me, I don’t think I have ever been
truly moved by anyone to answer, however I am so impressed and proud to know
that Lady Ada exists. Unfortunately I have let some people get under my
skin, discouraging me from doing the things that make me happy (programming,
carpentry and electronics) that I never met my full potential. I didn’t have
any person to reinforce the idea that it was okay for me to be me and I
dimmed my light to make others more comfortable. I feel like I am stronger
knowing you exist. I guess what I am saying is thank you for existing 🙂
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.
