Becky is our Director of Wearable electronics here at Adafruit, she’s also a close friend. Today we’re celebrating women in tech who inspire us, so besides Ladyada who I get to work with on a daily basis, I’m also lucky enough to work with Becky. Her energy, creativity and passion for teaching and sharing is incredible. Thank you Becky for being part of this adventure with us at Adafruit – Editor’s note, this is Phil writing this post on behalf of all of us at Adafruit

The aim is to create new role models for girls and women by celebrating amazing women making and doing cool things. If you’re looking for a worldwide Ada Lovelace Day event?
