Honestly, we didn’t think we’d be able to pull it off this year with the many challenges we’ve been facing. But some encouragement and determination was what we needed, and so we are pleased to be able to offer a range of holiday items for your enjoyment this year.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org , 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.
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.
