Dear Ladyada (Ms. Fried):
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the AMAZING tutorials that your company provides. Your employees provide stellar examples and empower us (the end user) to be able to easily follow along. The concise instructions makes it easy to understand how to use the items. These examples also plant seeds of creativity for extending and creating new projects, because we are given the knowledge on how it works.
I especially want to thank Tony D, on his STELLAR tutorials, especially the recent three part series on the “Raspberry Pi talking to WIFI ‘Things’”.
His tutorials are clear, easy to follow and provided many insights as to why you want to code in a particular way, including explaining some of the pitfalls. His easy style, programming skill and past experience is clearly conveyed to the end user. I love his examples because he takes the time to explain why he is coding in a certain way.
Having previously been a developer (pre WEB), I am learning so much by following along in his coding examples. I can’t wait for new tutorials from him. I could easily see him being a formal instructor on learning Python or web based coding.
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.
