Digi-Key, Adafruit, and the maker/pro-engineer community have been talking about electronics, Digi-Key & Adafruit history, and more!
Tune in tonight,July 12th for the final “Meet Digi-Key” event. A few of our friends from the Digi-Key staff will be there to discuss their company and talk about how Digi-Key and Adafruit work together in the maker community.
We’re huge fans of Digi-Key at Adafruit (we buy stuff from them all the time & they’re one of the top Adafruit distributors) and we’d love for you to get to know them, or if you already do, ask us some questions to learn more.
The chat and channel will be open and we want to hear from you. Please come with questions, comments, or just to say hi! See you there!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
