Forbes – The Top 50 Women In Tech 2018 – Limor Fried @forbes @adafruit
Forbes – The Top 50 Women In Tech 2018. Our Ladyada made the list this year! Thank you to everyone here at Adafruit that makes what Limor does possible, it’s a team of people that makes Adafruit… Adafruit! And thank you to our community and our customers!
Women don’t wait for the future. The 2018 Inaugural Top 50 Women In Technology lists identify three generations of forward-thinking technologists leading more than a dozen tech sectors across the globe. In November, we introduce America’s top 50 women working in STEM. The Forbes Europe list, which began this multipart series, launched on the eve of Ada Lovelace Day in October, honoring the first computer programmer. We close out the year with the Top 50 tech Moguls, Founders, Engineers, Innovators and Warriors in the world. *who happen to be women

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.
