Looking back… Lots of things could have been done sooner, better, different, however – here we are in Phase 4 in NYC – four months after much of NY shut down. We’re trying to do the best we can every day. We, as in New Yorkers. Mistakes still happen, set backs, frustrations, we got through it, and will get through it.
Please do not go through what we in NY went through. At this time, we only have a limited set of tools, we can use them, we can work together to slow it, then flatten it, creating the smart and safe ways to return the right way. If leadership isn’t working where you are at, do the work to make it happen, make noise, there’s nothing else left, we all must fix this now.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
