We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Adrian on Storage and Caring
We’re kicking off this year’s Labor Day coverage with Adrian who is a fantastic artist, teacher and counter. Adrian writes:
My name is Adrian. I work in the Storage Department as the New Products and Revisions Deparment liaison, and had previously been a team lead in the Gathering Department. The Storage Department is in charge of making sure every department within Adafruit recieves any requested item(s) from our backstock in a timely manner, and we make sure all our stock is as accurate as possible.
Adafruit is a very supportive, diverse company that really looks after it’s employees, and cares about individuality and the psychical/mental well-being of everyone. It cares just as much about it’s employees as it does it’s customers. This is the most fun I’ve had working with so many smart, beautiful, and talented people, including friends from past jobs and outside work, as well as newly made ones thanks to Adafruit. I never thought I’d ever be interested in coding or soldering anything, but Adafruit inspires me to do so.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
