We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Kenji from Receiving
I would just like to point out the awesomeness of Kenji’s workstation: two types of tape and a box-cutter, sure, but also the Kurosawa film studies book by Mitsuhiro Yoshimoto, a picture of Grace Jones, and a clipboard & pen that rivals his MacBook Air when it comes to receiving logistics!
Here’s what Kenji has to say this #LaborDay:
The receiving department is in charge of overseeing all incoming shipments to Adafruit. We collaborate with Purchasing to anticipate and track deliveries and then work with Storage to facilitate the delivery of products and components to their rightful homes in our warehouses. We use our world famous box-cutter, tape gun & component testing skills [Citation needed] to open and check every shipment to ensure the quantity and quality of delivered items are up to par. In the process we often get our hands *really* dirty with airborne grime. Nothing a little hand sanitizer can’t fix, and I’m sure it builds character.

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.
