Stay Home: Get Inspired to Work from Home with Adafruit’s “TrackTalk”

In Stay Home we re-highlight some original Adafruit blog content to help keep you entertained while so many of us are working remotely or otherwise keeping indoors. Thus far we’ve highlighted Q&As with our favourite MusicMakers and TasteMakers, talked a little Presidential history and we even dug up a couple of lists of Horror films that we think are essential viewing for New Yorkers and Engineers alike.

Today we want to re-highlight TrackTalk. This was a fun guest feature from the Adafruit music team, in which we invited artists to take us behind the scenes of a particular recording to talk creative process, recording set up and more. As we all try to stay busy and motivated at home, I thought people might find a little inspiration in these dives into people’s creative processes and how set up their own customized workspaces. People are writing, recording, creating, mixing, mastering, studio building and so much more from home and you can too. Read TrackTalk 1-7 below!

Stay healthy, stay safe and stay home.


8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
