From the mail bag!

Hi Limor + Phillip,

From all of us on the organizing team (and the hackers!) — thank you so much for working with us and giving an amazing fireside chat at HackMIT! We’re still tying up all the loose ends of the event, so apologies for this long overdue note!

Phillip — thank you for being such a pleasure to work with throughout the summer! It was great knowing that you were always accessible and willing to help 🙂

Limor — it was amazing hearing you speak. The tour of the factory (almost like we were right there in person!) was such a singular experience, and your Q&As about open-source hardware, education, and all the stories from Adafruit history were so inspiring. I’ll always remember that question about how to deal with being a woman in tech — and your perfect “Ah, you just kick their ass!” ?

We have quite a few people on team who were beyond excited to have you with us at the event this year, and we all couldn’t be happier 🙂

Hope you all and Adafruit have a great year ahead, and let us know if you’re ever back in town!

HackMIT
