We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Sully talks Fab
Sully gives us an inside look into our (fab) Fabrication Department:
Sully (soo-lee) here and I work in Adafruits fabrication department. Fab, as we like to call it, breaks up into 3 smaller group to get everything done. Machines will fabricate boards and pass them on to us in test/prep/build to QC then place into individual bags or boxes with proper components if product requires any. Other than test/prep, I also get to attach screens and solder things like microphones and USBs. From the moment I walked in for my interview, everyone has been so welcoming, helpful and patient. It’s things like that make it pretty chill around here. So much that it seems kind of hard to have a bad day. Generally, whatever is happening outside Adafruit stays out there on Varick Street every morning. Sometimes it’s still waiting for you when you walk back out to the street but that’s okay, work is still pretty good.
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.
