#AdafruitLearnSystem Weekly Update

Last week on the Adafruit Learning System, we published a whopping 11 guides! This week saw lots of new guides for the MatrixPortal, the guide for the newest AdaBox, a new QT Py guide, a DIY desktop calculator, and more!

Favorite New Guide

This weeks favorite new guide is by the Ruiz Brothers. Build a 3D printed light up tombstone with an animated eye! Use the HalloWing M4 and NeoPixels to make a backlit sign with a custom message or spooky face! There is still time to make great Halloween themed projects!

ALS Deep Cut

The Adafruit Learning System now has 2327 published guides! As you can imagine, some amazing guides of years past get buried and lost. ALS Deep Cuts brings these guides back up to the surface.

This weeks ALS Deep Cut was published all the way back in September of 2016. Make a DJ controller from conductive paint, cardboard, and a Circuit Playground!

DJ software is fun to use — who doesn’t like to get the crowd bumping? — but controlling it from a laptop keyboard isn’t. So, DJ software is often controlled with a peripheral device that has buttons, knobs, sliders, and turntables for a more natural feel. But you don’t need to invest in one, you can build your own: the Circuit Playground PZ-1!

AdaBox Projects

Every few months a new AdaBox ships, and with it comes a bunch of new guides. Be sure to check out all of the AdaBox guides published so far. If you aren’t an AdaBox subscriber, you can learn more about AdaBox and sign up for the next AdaBox here. There is still time to get what is probably the best AdaBox yet, AdaBox 016!


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.
