ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP


We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.

Come meet Adafruit & Microsoft at PyCon 2019! @pycon #pycon2019 @azure @pythonvscode #Microsoft @Adafruit @CircuitPython @kattni Come meet Microsoft & Adafruit at PyCon 2019!

Demos, hands-on-labs, expert help and swag at the Microsoft booth

The Python team at Microsoft will be at the Microsoft booth in the expo hall during the opening reception 5:30-7:30PM Thursday May 2nd, and during the conference on Friday and Saturday. They will be handing out some fun and unique swag and will have members from across their team available to chat and show you the latest in Visual Studio Code, Azure, Windows, and Azure DevOps.

Work through hands-on labs to quickly try out the latest capabilities for yourself, and pick up an Adafruit lunchbox kit (while supplies last).

Pick up your Adafruit kit by completing labs before Friday afternoon, and ask about details about a special CircuitPython mini-workshop by the Adafruit team happening at our booth later that day.

Cartoon Network and Make-Code Rose Quartz Shield Umbrella

Make a light-up umbrella inspired by Rose Quartz’s shield, from Steven Universe on Cartoon Network. This is a fun, easy project that doesn’t require any previous knowledge of coding, soldering, or sewing. You can customize the light animations and input triggers with a few clicks. Shield yourself from the rain and dazzle all your friends!
It’s also easy to take this project apart when the rainy season is over, and use your Circuit Playground and NeoPixels again for another fun project. Learn more!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
