We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Takara from Gathering
Here’s Takara! This is what she had to say for Labor Day:
Hey everyone! I’m Takara and I’m the Inventory Lead in the Gathering Department. My top priority is making sure that the amazing products you order are in stock and correctly labeled. I am also responsible for filling orders and, on rare occasions, shipping the orders out to you!
I am surrounded by coworkers who understand my love for professional wrestling, Beyonce, the Rock, the Yankees, football (Go Patriots!), the Knicks, and did I mention, wrestling? “Oooooh yeahhhhh” *Macho Man voice*. These are the kind of coworkers you can spend time with outside of work, which is pretty cool.
Limor and Phil have given me the opportunity of a lifetime and I am forever grateful. I absolutely love Adafruit…cause Stone Cold (and I) said so.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
