We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Alisha talks Kitting & Adafruit Vibes
Let’s see what Alisha has to say! Alisha writes:
My name is Alisha. I’ve been with Adafruit for a year and a half now. I’m a team lead in the Kitting department. Kitting is cool because you get to see what goes into making these awesome kits customers get to buy. A few things I love about Adafruit is how laid back everyone is here. You can be yourself and you get to meet some interesting people here too. I also love the fact that we have a female engineer for a boss. This is the first job I’ve worked at where I am happy to come into work. Such a great feeling.
This is a great company and I can’t wait to continue growing here!

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.
