Becky Stern’s Next Chapter @bekathwia #wearables

When I started at Adafruit in 2012, I thought of it as a dream job, and boy howdy did it deliver! If you ask me, we built some pretty crazy-rad things together. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the Adafruit team over the last four years and I will forever consider my time here a career highlight. I’m very proud of the work we’ve accomplished together, but now it’s time for me to make a change. February 2016 will be my last month as Adafruit’s Director of Wearable Electronics.

Let’s reminisce together about some Adafruit wearable electronics stats:

To quote David Bowie, “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” You can check out what I get up to next at BeckyStern.com and on my personal YouTube channel, as well as Twitter and Instagram.


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.

  1. Good luck with your new adventure Becky, will be keeping an eye out for your projects. 🙂

  2. While it makes me sad to see you leave Adafruit, I certainly wish you the best in whatever you choose to do from here. You have certainly been an inspiration to myself and countless others, and I cannot wait to see what your future holds. Stay awesome!

  3. Becky,

    At the first NY Maker Faire, I had just missed your talk on the TV-B-Gone hoodie. You patiently talked through the gist of your talk in 98+ degree heat. I always remember your positive attitude and kind demeanor. You’ve achieved awesome things at Adafruit. Best of luck to you in the future!

  4. 😱

    Enjoy!

  5. I wish you luck in the future, you’ve done and shown off amazing work during your time at adafruit. I know you’ll do great in the next chapters! Good luck for the future.

  6. Becky,
    Good luck with your future work – I’m sure it will be awesome! I think I was one of the last “Project Workshops” in your weekly show and your help was outstanding. In fact, that project is proceeding nicely and I’ll make sure I get you updates 🙂
