Dinacon 2 is an on-going, drop-in conference running from August 4- August
30, 2019, Gamboa, Panama. Our first experimental, self-funded, free-form
gathering in Thailand last year was so fun and fruitful, we are doing it
again! (Check out our free book from the first conference to get a feel for
what dinacon is like! https://www.dinacon.org/2018/11/02/book/ )
For one month, we will be hosting field biologists, interaction designers,
engineers, artists, and anyone simply interested in exploring new ways of
interacting with nature. All this will take place in Gamboa, one of the
world’s major hubs for biological field research.
Field Biologists, Interaction Designers, Hackers, Artists, and ANYONE
interested in finding new ways to explore the natural world is encouraged to
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
