Hi, my name is Cameron and I just want to say you guys
have totally gotten me out of somewhat of a rut I’ve been in for the past
couple years. Your website, your videos (especially your how-to’s and
educational ones) have really lifted me up and gotten me back into a
creative mindset. I’m learning again, I’m reading and experimenting again,
and most importantly I feel like my self again. I’ve set up a pretty sweet
“maker shop” in my office complete with some Adafruit parts and tools, and a
3D printer. I think this is a very scary and unsure time for a lot of people
like me, and what you guys do at Adafruit is truly inspiring. I love that
you actively and openly support of women in engineering/science/math/etc and
the LGBTQ+ community. Sometimes I feel like some companies kind of
marginalize us or forget about our group, but Adafruit doesn’t!
Anyway, thanks so much for snapping me back to myself, getting me active and
thinking and making again! Thank you for your support of ALL men, women, and
children who have a shared love of technology and engineering. Maybe I’ll
see you on a live stream one day!
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
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
