The ‘fruit – now with more ‘george’

George Graves

Adafruit is excited to introduce George Graves as the newest member of our technical staff.  George has been recording and archiving our live “Ask an Engineer” video chats each week (Saturday night at 10 pm EST), and we’ve officially brought him on-board to help out.  We’re excited to be working with George and expect great things from him in the future.

We asked George what got him interested in electronics: “When I was a kid, I’d take things apart, and then save all the little bits and pieces.  But the electronics were always a bit of a mystery to me.  I understood the basics, but never the details.”  He continues, “A few years ago, I dove in head first.  I was working on something that I eventually wanted to become a product to sell,  so I started to design my first PCB layout.  That’s when I got hooked, that’s when I fell in love.”

George’s comes to us with a unique skill set – he’s a video editor.  So we’re looking forward to taking advantage of George’s talents.  Welcome aboard George!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  4. Hi George,

    Nice to put a face to the name. Thanks for recording the videos, I was able to watch a few that I missed.
