Hello from the Adafruit Team!


Since it’s challenging to get a yearly company photo, we are doing these more, and more often.

See our group photo from January 2016, the ladies of Adafruit on Ada Lovelace Day 2013, 2014 and 2015, and from the time we went bowling!

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. Hello, Adafruit team! Thank you (each and every one of you!) for all you do to make Adafruit the awesome company that it is! You all have critical roles to play and those roles come together to make Adafruit a “place” rather than just a web site. It’s a place of community and togetherness where the customers feel like they’re a part of the movement rather than just customers. From the great products, to the awesome customer service, to the learning system, to the blog, to the almost daily live streams – Adafruit is a place where we can all interact and share our interests! Keep up the great work!
