It's not exactly clear what the real goal is. Is it parity in every single discipline, which is unreasonable, or is it gender parity across the whole totality of all the STEM disciplines? Or is it gender parity across all the professional disciplines, whether it is STEM or non-STEM?

One thing I thought about after frying my first three was that I had picked a model with less flash & ram than the ones Adafruit uses, so I made sure to get my replacements with their model. (In the bootloader source you can theoretically adjust for that but I haven't learned how to yet.)
Anyway I soldered up one of the QFNs last night & put the bootloader on it. This morning I wired it back up into my breadboard, plugged it in--and got a "new USB device" ding! I hooked up a little display, fired up the Arduino IDE and opened a sample sketch, and it worked. So that was really cool, and now I need to look into modifying the bootloader, but I essentially have an Adafruit Trinket M0 with about 20 more I/O pins than the real Trinket has, only without the RGB LED.

(Offshore everything out of the reach of the DMCA, seriously. I hate the PLA/PRC, but store the stuff in China ffs, because as far as that kind of stuff goes, they're way less stupid about it)
