Please welcome Adam to Adafruit!

Hello all you lovely makers! I am very excited to introduce myself: my name is Adam Bachman, I am here to write code and chew bubblegum, and I am all out of bubblegum!

As of May 23, 2016, I am the newest member of the Adafruit team and will mainly be working with Justin, Todd, Tyler, and the rest of the incredibly talented folks making Adafruit IO the best it can be.

I’ve been a resident of Baltimore City, making my way through the world as a software developer for the last 10 years. By day building software for Fortune 500’s, startups, bootstrapped artist-loving theater makers, and a few in between. On my own time I’ve been an Adafruit customer since 2007, started a hackerspace in 2009, and I’m super into Processing and creative code in general.

You can follow me on Github or Twitter if you like, though I can’t promise to be half as interesting as the people at the middle of this incredible enterprise 😀

ENOUGH ABOUT ME! I look forward to connecting with anyone crossing boundaries from software to hardware and back again. Artists, makers, hobbyists, professionals, first-timers, long-timers, indie, corporate, all of you, everyone, cats, maybe not so much dogs, whoever! I am psyched to get started, let’s make amazing things!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Ah, great quote! Speak Friend, and enter!

    (Say, Adafruit, those of us that are color blind would appreciate an HTML multimeter to read the value of the capcha resistor! – OK, third time, screen cap imported into photo editor to get the color hex values!)
