From the mail bag!

As a former tech support person for 23 years or so, I understand the value of making technology empowering, easy, affordable, and most of all; fun! And so does Adafruit!

Please forward my highest regards to your entire team! What you are doing is important for creative advancement and understanding, both of which are vital to our collective futures!

And, for what it’s worth, it was Lady Ada and Tony D. who I made a real connection with when watching their ‘learn’ videos, or product demos. I’ve spent a fair amount of time looking at electronics vendors from TI (love my Sensor Tag!) and others, but you stand out above the noise generated by the rest as being; run by humans, for humans. TI has plenty of products but you make finding what will really work tremendously easier!

You have also done a tremendous job of doing something that is near and dear to my heart; it’s all about making cool stuff, but then it’s all about writing clearly to inform and educate others about how cool it really is!

Stay Groovy!

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.
