From the mail bag!

I didn’t see a category for praise so I thought this was the closest thing.

I just wanted to let you guys know that you are doing everything right.

Your website is beautiful. The colors and design are perfect. Your photography on the site is also incredibly eye pleasing.

Your products are premium. It is obvious that you care about your market, you don’t put crap out there. Even when you accidentally do you fix it.

You understand social media so well. I don’t mean you get ‘a lot of likes on facebook’ I mean you understand why you produce content and your target audience. You produce content for electrical engineer geeks by electrical engineer geeks. It is not only genuine, it has an endearing quality that makes me want to spend money here. You also show your products in action, which, like I said above, means you don’t want to waste people’s time with crappy components.

You are the standard for what an online shop is and should be. Thank you.

I’m a sys admin who should have been an engineer (its never too late). What your site/content has taught me about hardware and soldering is invaluable. Your videos and products have helped me follow my passion, that is what it’s all about.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more.
