We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Garrett from Facilities

It’s hammer time! Next up, Garrett:

Hello!

My name is Garrett and I work in the Facilities department along with Julio, my brother in arms. In Facilities we do everything from construction and maintenance to buildouts and machinery installation. You name it, we’ll build it 🙂

One of the great things about working at Adafruit is the opportunity to learn new skills that I wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise. In the last year I’ve learned how to program Raspberry Pis, various micro controllers, and starting learning different programming languages like python, php, javascript, mysql and more!

Recently I used a Huzzah, temperature sensor, and a relay to rig up a thermostat for my window AC and was able to monitor the temperature on io.adafruit while on vacation. The furry friends (two cats) I had to leave behind were grateful for the cool living space amidst the NYC summer heat.

Working in an environment that fosters and encourages learning and creativity is truly amazing… along with the snacks, love the snacks 🙂
