We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Noah talks Fab!
Noah is fab. He also works in fab (Adafruit’s Fabrication Department that is). Well, I’ll just let him tell you about it:
Hey! I’m noah. I work in the fabrication department here at Adafruit. I primarily work on the machine line operating and sometimes programming the pick and place machines. I also program and operate the newest addition to our machine line-our selective soldering machine. I really love machinery and I have a lot of fun doing what I do. I am consistently blown away by the atmosphere here at Adafruit. I’ve never worked in a place that fosters the kind of incredible support and encouragement that i’ve found here. I truly feel lucky to be doing something that I love, in the city that I’ve always loved, with people whom I love and trust.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
