Getting Started

Now that we've taken a look at all the great stuff inside AdaBox 008, let's start using it! We packed this AdaBox 008 guide chock full of so much stuff that we decided to write this "Guide to the Guides" to help you navigate it all! Just click on the links on the left hand side of this page to get around.

Here in the Getting Started section, you'll take a tour of the Crickit platform in the Introducing Adafruit Crickit guide.

Project Sections

Then, once you're ready, the fun really gets going in the AdaBox 008 Projects sections!

You'll start off in the First Projects section, to begin making awesome projects using Crickit & Circuit Playground Express coded with MakeCode, and involving some of your new cardboard construction skills!

Next, you can take your coding to the next level using CircuitPython to program the Crickit and Circuit Playground Express in the Intermediate Projects section. Of course, as your skills grow you can go off of the beaten path and build projects of your own devising -- these guides are here to teach and inspire you so that you can make your own original creations!!

When you like, you can move into the Advanced Projects section. These projects will involve coding in either MakeCode or CircuitPython and will involve some increasingly involved building techniques to flex your fiberboard fabrication chops!
