We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Vance from Fabrication

Vance_ORIG_441 resize

Born with the superhuman ability of awesomesauce, Vance rivals Captain America in the categories of strength, speed, and stamina, and outclasses him in the soldering department. Vance’s first word as a baby was ‘Cowabunga’ and he learned to grappling gun before he could walk. All pre-cellphone video so this is purely word-of-mouth legend we’re talking about here. Here’s Vance in his own words:

My name is Vance Lewis, I am the administrator of prototype development and also do rework in the fabrication department.

At Adafruit on a day to day basis I manage the creation of new boards as well as the repairs for boards that have issues. These boards go from me to other departments as one piece of what makes up Adafruit’s priority product, the kits our customers love and use. I contribute to one part of a bigger process to make it all work smoothly.

What intrigues me the most about working here at Adafruit is that I get the opportunity to learn more. Working with technology is a passion of mine and I’m able to better understand the process of technology creation. I find every new project as an opportunity to further my knowledge.


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.
