We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Biniam from Kitting!
Biniam is in our Kitting department (I’ll always have a special little spot in my heart for the kitting department because thats where I started out when I began working here at Adafruit)! Heres what he has to say:
I’ve been working in the kitting department for a year now and I can honestly say that Adafruit is a wonderful place to work. In kitting I am responsible for combining loose components to make the kits that our customers love and desire. As an avid maker and DIY’er myself I enjoy the range of open source hardware that Adafruit provides as it makes electronics accessible to beginners and experts alike. In addition this is a great place to work because this diverse workplace is generous with patience, free with kindness, and open to personal growth.
In my spare time I work in theatre, film, and tv but I also enjoy sitting on chairs in creative ways (see photo).
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
