ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP


We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.

Code of conduct for communities (open-source, electronics, events, and more)

For electronic communities, and open source communities, codes of conduct are just as important as the code published, and the products shipped. Building a community means spending time on it, working together on policies, and making something inclusive.

We’ve published the “Adafruit Community Code of Conduct” and have been providing updates for online chats, events, and more. If it’s helpful, please use and adapt for your communities

Keeping with tradition, we covered quite a bit this past week. Here’s a kinda short nearing medium length list of highlights:

Hey – do you feel like you don’t have a clue? Do you wanna get a clue? In this ADABOX we will give you a clue… the Adafruit CLUE!

The CLUE is a sensor-packed development board with a small colorful screen and a lot of sensors. To make it compatible with existing projects, we made it the same shape and size as the BBC micro:bit and with the same edge-connector on the bottom with five big pads so it will fit into your existing robot kit or ‘bit add-on.
Each CLUE comes with a Nordic nRF52840 Bluetooth microcontroller, two buttons, 1.3″ 240×240 color TFT, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure, triple-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer, proximity/light/color/gesture sensor, microphone, and a buzzer. Everything you need to learn how to interact and analyze the world around you.

Have you been eagerly awaiting your ADABOX for a while? It has arrived! Thank you to everyone around the world who has been patient as this box made its way to you. There’s no better time to get an ADABOX, with lots of fun electronic projects you can build at home by yourself or with family. Thank you from the entire Adafruit team here in NYC!
