johngineer’s 971st Blog Post for Adafruit – Joins as Director of Imaging

Hi, I’m johngineer, and this is my 971st blog post (!) here on Adafruit. I’ve been doing this blog thing for quite some time, but this post marks a new milestone — it’s my first post as a full-time employee.

Specifically, I’m the new Director of Imaging, which means I’ll be working on all the photography that we share with the world to make it the best that it can be. I’ll be shooting behind-the-scenes photos and videos too, new product images, and all kinds of other stuff.

I’m also on the technical staff, so I’ll be working on new hardware designs with LadyAda, continuing my work on the Fritzing library, making cool projects, and generally doing fun technical work that (hopefully) wins hearts and minds.

[John will be on Ask an Engineer this weekend too!]

  1. Long time fan of John’s photography and Blog posts. You are building a Justice League of Super Makers, Ladyada!

  2. Congrats, John! This is exciting news!

  3. Congratulations John!

    I am very happy to hear this, all my favorite maker people are joining the Adafruit crew! Now nothing on earth will be able to stop the Fritzinator from empowering all of the Adafruit products with fritz templates! (over time of course 😉

    I see this as a very Good thing, and not a case where Adafruit is becoming too-big, but a company that is adding super-talented, awesomely-cool people to make Adafruit even better. Welcome to the Adafruit crew!!!

    Great pics on Simon and Johngineer Limor, I could not think of better peeps to join your fabulous company. =)
