Adafruit is undoubtedly the most important company for Makers and IoT builders. Not only does Adafruit make high quality boards, they also supply the open source drivers we require to make these great components actually work. Given all that Adafruit does for us, its only fair that we pay a little more. While cheapo ESP32 boards can be purchased on Amazon for about $12 and you can find sketchy deals on AliExpress for as little as $6, the Adafruit Huzzah32 Feather Board is a pricey $20, but the build quality is excellent and it features a built in LiPo connection and charger.
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.
