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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
