We’ve a tough last 18 months like everyone else, we’re using this month to celebrate that we made it here together, and what great timing, it’s Halloween. The NYC Halloween parade it back this year, 100% of Adafruit is vax’ed, we all need a time to recover, heal, and move together into a cool gothy electronic future. Pictured here: Ashley, Ladyada, me, some decorations on one of our floor – will post more later, these are all in-progress.
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.
