We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Alisa from Purchasing
Here’s what Alisa has to say:
As head of product revisions and as part of the purchasing team, I get to see first hand the really cool products and components Adafruit brings to the public. I work alongside some absolutely brilliant people and I feel so fortunate to be apart of this family. I joined Adafruit almost 4 years ago and to this day I’m still overwhelmed when I think about just how lucky I really am.
Our motto is “Be excellent to eachother” and this company goes above and beyond to show ensure that and show its appreciation for each and every one of us. I feel truly respected here and valued on my day to day. That, plus knowing and observing the incredible work ethic the owners of Adafruit have just pushes me to work harder and harder everyday.
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.
