This Day in Electronics History … Call for help, tweets’ coming #ThisDayInElectronicsHistory
We’re kicking off a new project that will celebrate companies, components, makers, hackers, artists, and engineers in the world of electronics every single day of the year. We’ve started to collect invention dates, birthdays of inventors / company founders/founding/incorporation and more. We’ve partnered with Digi-Key so expect to see some of your favorite components and companies as well.
The next round of this project is to get some specific dates from companies for when they were founded or other details when something was released, or some type of milestone.
We will be tweeting and sending emails to the various entities, this blog post is an effort to help provide information as to why we are asking.
Once completed, we’ll have a blog post each day of the year, JSON/RSS, device-formatted data for IoT/Calendars and a lot more!
Here we go!
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.
