and starring johngineer as… himself

[Note from Adafruit, everyone give John a warm welcome – he’s going to writing here with us!]

Hi, I’m Johngineer. I recently began working with Adafruit on their product and tutorial photography, and now I’m going to be working on the blog too. I’ve been a photographer for a little over 10 years, and I’ve been making and working with electronics for even longer.

I look forward to working with Adafruit to bring you all kinds of great stuff in the future, whether it’s science and hacking/maker news, or just great photos.

I live in New Jersey with two enormous (and lazy) barn cats. I also enjoy restoring motorcycles, woodworking and gardening.

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, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

Join 16,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7:30pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

  1. Is he single? 😉

  2. Congratulations. Looking forward to some photography tips for the photographically challenged 🙂

  3. Wow! Great name! Of course, now I’m left wondering… does it mean “logical NOT of John” or “bang John”.

    You’re obviously a radiohead fan, so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. 🙂
