In solidarity with everyone working from home, we invited our team members (local and remote) to share pictures of their workspaces à la From the desk of Ladyada. By the way, this is a judgment-free zone, whether you have a messy pile of wires, boards, and snacks or a neatly manicured desktop!
Ready for more desk selfies? Here we go!
Gasp. What organization! Loving the monitor options and mic rig 👀
A most excellent desk with a truly ~radical~ bookshelf
This workspace is just cool, cool, cool. Clearly it’s been the testing grounds for countless Adafruit learn guides.
Ok we escalated quickly to literally cool! Jeez peep that snowy landscape! I want cocoa now.
Ah, yes, the eternal quantum formula: if I fits, I sits.
We’re starting to have a running theme…
We’re going to close this post with some workspace reflection from one team member:
“I recently moved from NYC into an old mill with huge (16′ tall) windows. I work in the living room and have lots of light during the day. I typically have one to two projects on my desk at a time to keep myself focused. The shelf to the immediate right of my desk contains parts and products I need to grab quickly, all labeled and organized. Projects, kits, and guides I’ve created for Adafruit are stored on the bottom shelves in labeled storage bins.”
Tune in next week for more #TeamAdafruit #WFH desk pics!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
