Today we released an update to the Adafruit Learning System landing page that we are pretty excited about. We got rid of the random, unorganized landing page and its masonry design. We now offer a much more curated experience which should help you discover new guides.
Our catalog of guides has grown to almost 2000 guides, so naturally some of the older guides have gotten buried. With this new design we hope to bring some of these great old guides back in the spotlight with guide groups. These are hand curated groups of guides based on a theme like 3d printing, robots, no soldering required, beginner, etc.
There is also a new hero system that will bring attention to a constantly changing set of our favorite guides. So check back often!
We have even more great new features for the Adafruit Learning System under development, and can’t wait to share them with you.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
