Dale Dougherty on TFW Your Device Breaks Up With You
Dale Dougherty brings up some very important points, mainly how should we be thinking about end-of-life for our smart devices, in this article from Make:
Frankly, it feels a lot better when you decide that your device is not working for you anymore. This is not like that. Here technology is abandoning you, not you abandoning it. You’d like to stay in the relationship but it’s done with you.
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.
