#MARCHintosh is all month long! Celebrating the Macintosh retrocomputing community!
It’s MARCHintosh! And it’s all month long! Celebrating the Macintosh retrocomputing community – What is it? From: marchintosh.com –
With the success of such events as DOScember and SEPTandy, why shouldn’t the Macintosh retrocomputing community have their own month to share their passion for classic Macintosh computers?
DO – HAVE FUN, BUILD FRIENDSHIPS, PROMOTE MACINTOSH RETROCOMPUTING! DO – Use the hashtag #MARCHintosh in the weeks leading up to the event start date. Tag social media posts and event content to spread the word. DO – Use the official event artwork (Thank’s Javier!) when possible. DO – Focus on 68K/PPC/Early Intel Macs – Official Apple products and clone machines from the early days of MacOS all the way up to OS 9 (and OS 9 under OS X on 68K/PPC Macs) DO – Create Upgrade and Repairs videos / Hardware Hack Blog Posts / Game Reviews / Productivity and General-use Software Reviews about classic Macs – are all welcome! DO – Use the platforms you already use… YouTube / Instagram / Facebook / Twitter / Podcasts / Twitch – are all welcome!
We’ll be posting photos, videos, how-tos, hacks, mods, news, articles, and more all month long – mostly on Mastodon and our Tumblr in addition to our blog. Here are some resourceshttps://adafruit.com/marchintosh to follow along all month long! See you there and JOIN IN!

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
