Take Flight with Feather Contest! hackaday.io says: 

The Adafruit Feather is the latest platform for microcontroller development, and companies like Particle, Sparkfun, and Seeed Studios are producing Feather-compatible devices for development and prototyping. Now it’s your turn. Design a board to fit in the Feather ecosystem and we’ll manufacture it. The best project in the Take Flight With Feather contest will be sent off to pick and place machines and head straight to the Digi-Key warehouse! 

 To get started, take a look at the current Feather ecosystem and get acquainted with the GitHub repo filled with examples and tutorials. 

For the Take Flight With Feather contest, we’re looking for the cool, the useful, the insane, and the practical. Most of all, we’re looking for manufacturability. Electron savant Lady Ada will be judging each board on the basis of manufacturability, with the best board moving on to the assembly line where it will be stocked at Digi-Key.

Join the contest on hackaday.io!

Adafruit Feather STM32F405 Express
ST takes flight in this upcoming Feather board. The new STM32F405 Feather (video) that we designed runs CircuitPython at a blistering 168MHz – our fastest CircuitPython board ever! We put a STEMMA QT / Qwiic port on the end, so you can really easily plug and play I2C sensors.

You can use MicroPython, CircuitPython or Arduino IDE with this board, with some caveats.

November is Native American Heritage Month and all month long we will be sharing blog posts to celebrate. You can check back every weekday for a new post paying tribute to the experience, history, traditions and contributions of American Indians and Alaska Natives.
