Each week, John Park codes a project from scratch, integrating MakeCode concepts and strategies. Thanks to Microsoft MakeCode Online Learning, you can interact via chat in Mixer and Discord, making it an ideal experience for teachers, students, and parents who are new to coding. Catch up on past episodes here!

Expanding on the popular MakeCode Minute series John teaches fundamental MakeCode techniques in the context of real projects, such as hand washing timers, video game controllers, LED animations, music makers, soil sensors, retro games, and more.
Covering MakeCode for Circuit Playground Express, micro:bit, maker boards, and MakeCode Arcade, MakeCode Live with John Park offers a wide variety of platforms for viewers to learn in both the browser-based simulator and on actual hardware. Tune in to the next episode with your kids, parents, or virtual classroom — come on into the chat to participate in the fun! Every Tuesday @ 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern.

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 @
