Adafruit 2019 2911

Hackaday and are communities for open hardware makers, for open hardware month, we asked Sophi Kravitz what open hardware means to Hackaday …

Hackaday, a news site sharing articles and hacks from the hardware community, was founded just over 15 years ago. In 2014, was launched as a complementary virtual hacker space for the open hardware community to grow, learn, and share their work. quickly grew into a supportive and friendly community of 400,000. It’s a wonderful place to meet people to build a team, get support on a project, and create new projects and products. How-tos on the latest hardware interests show up just as soon as something new is released, there are tutorials about FPGAs, Circuit Python and Micropython, ESP32s, and everything Raspberry Pi.

Projects on range from DIY cell phones, to wearables, to Burning Man gear, to spectrometers. The range is wide, but the passion for sharing what you made and how you made it is unmistakable and it is what makes this community special.

Visit Hackaday and

I started Hackaday over 15 years ago, designed the logo, look/feel, and set it in motion. I’m really pleased it’s still a good resource and is in good hands (I do not have anything to do with the site now besides being a reader and when possible work on projects together).

Open source hardware month @ Adafruit:


October is open-source hardware month! Every single day in October we’ll be posting up some open-source stories from the last decade (and more!) about open-source hardware, open-source software, and beyond!

Have an open-source hardware (or software) success story? A person, company, or project to celebrate? An open-source challenge? Post up here in the comments or email, we’ll be looking for, and using the tag #OHM2019 online as well! Check out all the events going on here!

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, 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.

Join 16,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7:30pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
