MORE ARDUINO SUPPORT! Welcome Bill (arduwino) to the Adafruit customer support forums!
We are expanding our Arduino tech support help in the Adafruit customer forums – we are very pleased to welcome Bill (as known as arduwino). Bill is an embedded systems engineer. He uses the Arduino as a prototyping platform for small control systems and medical devices, as well as for personal projects such as experimental robots and interactive sculpture. He will be helping out on the forums, answering questions and offering advice. We’re in the forums 24/7 helping hundreds of people with their projects. Bill specializes in Arduino support and he is there to help!
Our goal is to provide the best service, support and products – having great people like Bill help you with your journey in electronics is just one of the things we have to offer, when you’re thinking of electronics we hope you consider us for these reasons.
We approached Bill after seeing all of his helpful posts in our forums – if you’re looking for a future gig with Adafruit, just do amazing stuff, be helpful in the forums, post tutorials and perhaps we can work together. We believe in hiring & working with folks from the community! 🙂
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
