Codecademy’s Curriculum Team recently held our bi-annual internal hackathon. From 8:30 am to 6:30 pm, we hacked, snacked on dim sum, and hacked some more!

We’ve done internal hackathons before, but this time, we want to try something a little different. This time, the hackathon winner will be judged by (drum roll…) YOU!

But before diving into the projects we built and opening the vote, we’ll explain what a hackathon actually is, and why you might want to take part in one near you.

12. Circuit Playground Express (Lesson + Project)

Plug in and play, right on Codecademy. Ladyada and Phil at Adafruit suggested that we build a CircuitPython course so here I am, trying to make that happen. In this lesson, you will learn about Circuit Playground Express, the perfect introduction to electronics and programming. There is also a project where you build an “808” Drum Machine with… fruits!
