We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Samantha from Fabrication!
Samantha organizes soldering workshops for the team where employees can get up close and personal with adafruit kits while honing their soldering skills! Thanks Samantha!
Hi all! I am Samantha and I work in the Fabrications department (Fab for short). My responsibilities in Fab consists of soldering, test, prep and QA of our products. I also help with building and organization of our testers.
My other role in Adafruit is head of the Soldering Workshops that are hosted a couple of times a year. We build super cool things that are from our site such as MintyBoosts, TimeSquare watches and more recently, the PiGRRL’s. I’m also starting up a new program called AdaE.D.U which provides skill building for our members in Adafruit. We always believe in creating opportunities for everyone, which is why this is an awesome place to work. The environment makes you love coming to work each day.
When I’m not at Adafruit, my hobbies consists of video games, coding, reading and buying lots of Funko Pop dolls…seriously, I love those figures. 🙂
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.
