Hello Adafruit customers and friends, I’m Tony DiCola and I’m happy to announce I’m joining Adafruit Industries as an engineer. My passion for computers and electronics goes back to a young age where I played games on an Apple IIGS as a child, wrote my first computer programs in QBASIC on a 486 as a teenager, and soon afterwards bought my first soldering iron and promptly broke (and then fixed!) my Playstation while trying to modify it. I come from an education in computer science and experience working on web services at Microsoft for the past few years. However you might know me from regular appearances on the the weekly show and tell or some of the guides I’ve published on Adafruit’s learning system like the smart cocktail shaker or web-controlled cat laser toy. I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Adafruit and look forward to helping Adafruit’s customers build great things!
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.
