John Park at Maker Faire Miami Online – Today at 3pm Eastern @johnedgarpark @makerfairemiami @adafruit
I’ll be doing a behind-the-scenes workshop tour and talk today at Maker Faire Miami, which is online and free to register and attend. If you’ve ever wanted to see the deep dark secrets of my shop, from which I broadcast my weekly livestream John Park’s Workshop for Adafruit, this is your chance!
Come on by today, Saturday August 15th at 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern time. There are loads of great speakers to see, and the Whova platform they’re using facilitates Q&A and discussions about the sessions, so be sure to sign up.

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.
