Over two days, the first ever New York Tech Zine Fair (NYTZF) will provide a platform for 20+ exhibitors and DIY publishers to sell and circulate their work in a supportive community. Join us as we showcase the ways in which visual artists, writers, engineers, technologists, illustrators, and designers are using the space of zines and similar DIY creations to examine what we consider to be “technology” and offer a fresh perspective on digital culture.
The NYTZF will feature a calendar of workshops, educational programming and social events. Sign up for our mailing list to stay informed!

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
