Free event in NYC Sat 8/25 from Project Jupyter on Eventbrite:
Join us for the free JupyterCon Community Sprint from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday, August 25, at the Hilton Midtown (Murray Hill), sponsored by Bloomberg. All community members, whether or not you plan to attend the main conference, are invited.
This event is free to attend but registration is required.
During this hands-on “Open Studio” day, collaborate with other community members and leaders to work on a Jupyter-related project, share insights and experience with others, design or implement that feature you’ve always wanted, fix bugs, write documentation, test software, dive deep into the internals of a project, get started on a new project, or just learn how to get started contributing to open source.
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.
