Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Adafruit has grown to over 50 employees in the heart of NYC with a 15,000+ sq ft. factory. Adafruit has expanded offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. Limor was the first female engineer on the cover of WIRED magazine and was recently awarded Entrepreneur magazine's Entrepreneur of the year. Ladyada is on the NYC Industrial Business Advisory Council. In 2014 Adafruit was ranked #11 in the top 20 USA manufacturing companies and #1 in New York City by Inc. 5000 "fastest growing private companies". Adafruit was featured for New York in Google's 2015 Economic Impact Report.
Recientemente tuve la oportunidad (por fin) de hacerme de una tarjeta ESP8266 de la que tanto hablan. Como un maker que se inició en la electrónica gracias a Arduino, siempre he tenido el "temor" o esa resistencia a tratar de usar otras tarjetas, no se por que sea, supongo que debe ser por la misma resistencia al cambio. En fin, eso es harina de otro costal, el tema que nos interesa en este post es el de iniciar con ESP8266. Los productos de Adafruit son geniales, este en particular tiene el ID 2471. .
What's better for your project than rings, strips, boards and sticks of pulsing, colorful miniature LEDs? We can't think of much else - and that's why we carry a complete line of the Adafruit original NeoPixels. These popular products are chainable from one to the next so you can power and program a long line of NeoPixels together to form an endless (or almost endless) string of 5050 LEDs. Plus, with our NeoPixel Uberguide, wonderfully written NeoPixel library for Arduino and our diverse range of Learn System projects, its never been easier to both find a project and program it to glow or spin or flash as quickly, slowly, and vibrantly as you want.
