We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Marty from Web Development
Marty is a most-excellent web developer, fueled by a minimum 2-cup cold brew coffee per day! He’s a maker as well, tinkering equally with both Huzzah/Arduino and Raspberry Pi! He’s responsible for many of the web tools that power Adafruit including ones you don’t see but likely use if you shop with us, learn with us, or even now as you read this blog!
I’m Marty, I have been at Adafruit for over three years now and it’s been great. I work in our internal web development department managing and building the programs we use here. My role over the last several years has grown and changed in unique ways that are not possible at most other jobs I have ever had. I enjoy my work immensely here, but the greatest thing that this job has brought me is the creative problem solving and new skill sets that come from the maker community. I have been able to learn so much about the products we sell and their uses in my personal life that I would not have experienced otherwise.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
