About Parallax:

At the age of 13 in 1981, Parallax founder, Chip Gracey had his first major introduction to programming and electronics: the Timex Sinclair computer. Chip’s influential junior high computer teacher Bob Wofford in the Winston Churchill Intermediate Sacramento, California school put Chip to work teaching the other students.

It was apparent that Chip’s technical skills were a passionate interest. Chip’s father Chuck brought home an Apple II computer and a green text monitor for the weekend.

Chip was fascinated by the new machine, writing BASIC code to display graphics and even removing the case to see the electronic components inside.

The computer had to return to his father’s office every Monday, giving Chip time to plan his next weekend programming project.

What are “Maker Deals” ? These are companies and people that do electronics, art, engineering, or just something interesting our team wants to spotlight using our Adafruit megaphone – these are not sponsored in any way, we do these each year and yah – some people will point out or dunk on us that we’re promoting our “competitors” but we do not see it that way. Post yours on social with #makerdeals or email’em to pt@adafruit.com , we’ll be posting all weekend through Monday. See last year’s “Welcome to #ADADEALS 2020 sales and more from maker companies that are NOT Adafruit” too … On Tuesday we’ll have our GivingTuesday stuff on the blog and socials.


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
