Things we’re thankful for – 2010

Roboturkey

We’d like to thank our customers, they fuel us, inspire us and help us. Without you there isn’t an Adafruit. We’re thankful that we have the best employees in the world helping us on this journey. We’d like to thank our readers of this site, your contributions and comments makes this fun every single day. We’d like to thank our weekly participants on “Ask an Engineer” – we’re glad this experiment turned out to be a useful resource for so many people. We’d like to thank the open source software community, without them – none of us would be here. We’re thankful for the open source hardware community for showing that it’s possible to not only give everything away, but to also create cool companies and products. We’re thankful for our friends and families that understand we’ve picked an odd thing to do for a living, it takes all of our time and passion, we’re thankful they are patient with us. We’re thankful for the opportunity we all have, right now, to make the world a better place through engineering. We’re thankful for our partners, suppliers and resellers for upholding the values and standards we try to celebrate. We’re thankful for being able to do what we love every day and never needing to call it “work”.

We’re thankful for the people out there who choose to share knowledge – Happy Thanksgiving – Adafruit 2010.


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.

  1. I’m thankful for Lady Ada and the daily posts from Adafruit. You are living our dream. But please: a 10% resistor as the captcha? Come on. Nobody uses 10% resistors anymore unless they live near a Radio Shack. 😉

    Happy Thanksgiving to Adafruit.

    May your pick-n-place be forever clacking along. May your PCB laminator be forever warm. May your supply of breadboard jumper cables be endless. And may your enthusiasm for the cause of open source hardware be eternal.
