From the mail bag!

It’s been a bit over one year since I first started learning and making things with Adafruit kits and components (see below). My projects are steadily becoming more complex and sophisticated — and more technically challenging! I now have experience with the Feather family including designing an interrupt-driven arbitrary waveform generator, a music synthesizer interface, a time machine movie prop, a workshop corrosion monitor using packet radio, and my first exposure to microPython. My experience working with Adafruit products has also propelled me into designing and building custom ATTiny 85 development PCBs, MCU programmers, and yes, even some analog sound modules. These experiences have also led to greater involvement in our local maker space where I was encouraged to teach.

What’s on the horizon? Well, more Feather applications, of course, but soon I’ll expand into a couple of Pi projects. There are many more ideas in my logbook that are just waiting for my attention.

You continue to amaze me with the depth and innovative breath of your product line, support forums, and educational tutorials. The enthusiasm, dedication, and exceptional positive business philosophy of your staff clearly shine through your product line. To a person, my experience with the Adafruit team has always been stellar. Thank you for continuing to keep my creative spark alive.

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
