Maybe you know next Saturday 2nd of April is the Arduino Day. It's a day to celebrate the Arduino movement and all the good things we enjoy with Arduino.
The Open Hardware Summit 2015 will be held September 19th in Philadelphia, PA (USA). This event brings together the open hardware community for a day of talks on all aspects of open-source hardware. It’s an inspiring event and a great chance to connect with other open hardware practitioners. The summit is organized by the Open Source Hardware Association.
If you’d like to speak at the Summit, check out the call for submissions. You have until July 2nd to submit your proposal. Decisions on the schedule will be made by July 31st.
You can get your tickets for the Summit. Past years have sold out, so you may want to get them early.
If you’d like to sponsor the Summit, see the sponsorship details.
Thursday May 28th at noon The Computer History Museum is hosting an open lecture by Massimo Banzi, co-founder of the Arduino project. He will cover the historical origins of Arduino, including discussion of the process of designing tools which make digital technology accessible to people who are not experts, and the essential role of the larger Arduino ecosystem that supports this remarkable computer platform.
The Computer History Museum, located in Mountain View (California), is a nonprofit organization exploring the history of computing and its ongoing impact on society in the last 40 years. The Museum is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computer history, it hosts the largest international collection of computing artifacts in the world and many virtual exhibition you can explore directly online.
If you like vintage images and history of computing, check the “visible storage” collection below.
The main image of this post is a picture by Massimo Banzi showing the first useable Arduino prototype. Still called “Wiring Lite”, used as a low cost module for wiring users. David Cuartielles joined at this point (the flying resistor is his first contribution to the design) from this point on the project becomes Arduino.

If you are a maker living in Europe and you’ve been looking at the Makerfaire events with enthusiasm and wishing to be there, this is the moment to spring into action because The Call for Makers for the 1st Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition, is NOW open (until 2nd June 2013)!
The Call is the opportunity you have to submit your great project to the Maker Faire Team and become one of the protagonists of this amazing Show (and Tell) taking place next October in Rome.
We are welcoming projects from all over Europe because we believe that the power of innovation should not be limited by local bounds. Makers from all over the continent are invited to take part and share their projects to all the lovers of the “do it yourself” spirit, connect and feel the empowerment of sharing.
Even if the main focus of the event is about highlighting the process of making things together, we are also looking for performers and presenters who want to share their ideas and projects from a stage. Read carefully the call to snatch all the details.
If you’d like a bit of inspiration, stay tuned to our blog as in the next weeks we’ll be featuring some of the makers who have exhibited at previous Maker Faires.
And keep in mind that the deadline for submissions is Sunday 2nd June 2013.
Looking forward to being amazed by your projects and seeing you there!
Come ogni anno, il 27 Ottobre 2012 si terrà in oltre 100 sedi in Italia il Linux Day, manifestazione nazionale di promozione al software libero open-source. Come non promuovere i fratelli maggiori?
Presso alcuni eventi si terranno talk e presentazioni su Arduino e il mondo dell’open-hardware: vi invitiamo a segnalarceli nei commenti a questo post, precisando luogo, ora e/o il link al sito di riferimento. Il sito ufficiale del Linux Day 2012 è: http://www.linuxday.it .
Lista dei LinuxDay con interventi su Arduino :
Next July a workshop on wearable computing will be held at Supsi Summer School (Ticino).
Goal of the workshop is the design and prototyping, through the Arduino platform, of objects that sense, interpret and react to the real world and that can be wearable and digitally fabricated.
