You already have Git setup, and you have a GitHub account. You want to contribute to an open source project like one of Adafruit’s Arduino libraries, but you’re not sure where to start. This guide walks through the steps from forking your first repo to your GitHub account, to cloning it locally, creating a working branch, making a commit, pushing your code to your fork, creating a PR, and both receiving and giving a review. You’ll learn good practices and tips and tricks, and before you know it, you’ll be a pro contributor. Pick a project, find an issue, and let’s get started!
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.
