We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Abby talks Kitting!
Abby has been kicking butt in kitting since Day 1. Below, she gives us the 411 on kitting at Adafruit!
Hey, names Abigail
In my mind im the best dancer that has lived but in real life I’m just a kitter. I work in the kitting department with some of the coolest people at Adafruit. Kitting consisted of a ton of very small components and packs that I get to prepare for those who order new kits, and when soldered together correctly they make an awesome gadget.
The thing I love most about Adafruit is the fact that they allow the employees to take a soldering workshop on a kit interesting to us to find out for ourselves what the kitted products end point is ?. I’ve made a few things in my time here at Adafruit. I look forward to each new product that comes in because that just means its another project for me. Adafruit is no longer a job for me its become a family.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
