It’s Maker Faire New York Week!
There are lots of happenings leading up to Maker Faire in the Python world. Coming off of PyCon UK, the Python world is stoked. Coming this week: Maker Faire 2018 will be a cornucopia of Python goodness, both in announcements and in networking to see what is happening what should be ahead.
If you’re able, come over to Maker Faire. Keep in touch via the Adafruit Discord channel CircuitPython area as the Adafruit CircuitPython team members will be roaming the faire, both Saturday and Sunday, and we would like to talk to Python enthusiasts. Adafruit does not have a booth this year, but we’re out and about!
If we’re not touring, we’re probably hanging out with our friends at Digi-key in Zone 3. They will be working with the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, come see what they’ve made. Ands speaking of the CPX, at noon on stage in Zone 3, Adafruit engineer Mike Barela will be talking about his new book from Make – Getting Started with Circuit Playground Express. New to CPX? Like to get going with CircuitPython? This book will help you get started. Mike will be signing books afterwards and talking to folks, come say hi.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
