We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Marty from Web Development

Marty_ORIG_367 1 resize

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.


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.
