I’m a software guy that’s pushing 50, and up until recently, I never even
owned a soldering gun. I got inspired by watching videos and am voraciously
learning as much as I can about the hardware side of the world.
I am thoroughly impressed by your company. From the quality of the products
that I’ve used, to the interesting videos (including the show and tell
videos and many of the others), to… well, so many other things as well.
Most of all, though, I am impressed to see Ladyada providing a positive role
model for girls that might be interested in STEM education and careers. Her
attitude in the videos along with an obviously brilliant mind makes
engineering like this fun. I really hope that my middle school daughter
sees me watching and gets inspired by seeing the things you showcase.
Keep doing what you’re doing,
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.
