A team at Microsoft is starting to do work with maker entrepreneurs, and have a new survey to help gather data. Adafruit comes up specifically in two places: Adafruit’s boards (Feather, CPX, and Adafruit, ‘other’) under hardware tools and Adafruit IO under cloud tools, yay!
Do you own or work at a hardware or manufacturing focused small business? Microsoft is looking for participants to help them learn about how Microsoft can best serve your community! If you are interested, please fill out our survey at the link below:
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.
