We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Nick Normal from Community, Support & Publishing
You may already know Nick Normal from his prolific and popular posts on the Adafruit blog. He also may have assisted you in a matter of Adafruit customer support. Here’s a bit more about CSP Team Member Nick Normal:
Howdy! I’m Nick Normal and I’m with the Community Support & Publishing team here at Adafruit. We wrangle all the incoming customer support requests, as well as manage the blog & social media channels. I’ve been with Adafruit for just over a year now but I’ve been a fan for much longer, having been involved with the ‘arts-tech’ scene in NYC for well over a decade. What I love about Adafruit is our customer base, their excitement and enthusiasm for using our products to make the world around them fundamentally better and more interesting. Because of Adafruit’s diversity of staff, their skills and identities, I like to think of this company as a microcosm of NYC, of the world (i.e. humanity), and ultimately the maker movement – it’s an inspiring place full of amazing people!
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.
