Arduino at Maker Faire Bay Area 2017

Arduino will once again return to Maker Faire Bay Area, taking place May 19th-21st in San Mateo, CA.

As a sponsor of this year’s event, attendees will be able to meet our team, go hands-on with boards and projects, and even buy kits of their own at our pop-up shop at the Arduino booth. Makers can also learn about all of our recent developments as Massimo Banzi takes Center Stage for his annual ‘State of Arduino’ keynote on Saturday at 12:45pm.

Those who come by our booth (#2522) will have the chance to check out our new MKR family, which include the MKR1000, MKRZero, MKR2Uno Adapter, MKR Relay Proto Shield and MKR Proto Shield, along with some IoT demos created in collaboration with Officine Innesto and Fablab Bologna.

Why wait to get home to purchase your boards? The MKR lineup as well as a few special bundles–the MKR Family Developer Bundle, the UNO to MKR bundle and the Young Maker Bundle–will be on sale all weekend long. These kits will be available at a discounted price on-site and on our online store from Friday, May 19th to Sunday, the 21st.

But that’s not all. We’ll be joining our friends at Intel, where we’ll be showcasing Arduino Education’s CTC 101, a modular STEAM curriculum for schools looking to bring technology and programming into their classrooms. There, you’ll also find a preview of some projects built with the Starter Kit 101, the latest collaboration between Intel and Arduino.

Whether you have a question about Arduino, want to speak with our team of experts, or simply want to take home a board, be sure to swing by our booth and store next weekend! For more information and tickets, check out Maker Faire’s official site!

Join DSI4EU’s final event in London!

The Digital Social Innovation for Europe (DSI4EU) is an online platform supporting those developing open hardware and software solutions that tackle social challenges.

The platform showcases the work of Makers and designers, and tags their organizations as part of networks like research alliances or membership bodies. DSI4EU also aims to map and identify fundings across Europe, along with other potential partners and collaborators for digital social innovators.

On May 16th, DSI4EU will share their approach to policy, funding, and public service partnerships with policymakers, investors and practitioners in London. The event will take place at Nesta headquarters (58 Victoria Embankment, London, EC4Y 0DS) and is open to everyone (free registration).

Topics discussed will include: lessons about growth and impact from the innovators themselves, building capacity in the non-profit, funding, investment and sustainable business models, as well as emerging city-based strategic approaches to digital social innovation.

Then on May 17th, participants will be able to join fellow practitioners, policymakers, and civil society groups from Europe on a tour of London’s most exciting digitial social innovation venues, while gaining an overview on some amazing projects that are delivering real social impact. Each organization will host for an hour and offer a short workshop with opportunities for networking, conversation, and knowledge exchange.

Arduino Day 2017: Thank You!

On April 1st, Arduino Day was celebrated by more than 499 communities in 79 different countries, with official events held in Turin, Malmo and San Jose.

In Turin (photos can be found here), Massimo Banzi and Federico Musto unveiled the latest developments of the Arduino platform, including products like the MKRFOX1200, NFC Shield, LoRA Gateway Shield, LoRA Node Shield, as well as the Casetta and Libretto Kits. Moreover, they also highlighted new improvements to Arduino Create, particularly its expansion to Chromebook users, and recent advancements of Arduino’s educational project, CTC.  

Weren’t able to tune in to our live stream? Watch the video below to catch all of the day’s talks by various members of the Arduino team.

Most importantly, we would like to express a heartfelt thanks to our extremely passionate and awesome community. It was YOU who made Arduino Day a huge and successful celebration we will never forget.

Arduino at Salone del Mobile: Come and visit us in Milan!

 

The annual Salone del Mobile–which will be taking place in Milan from April 4th-9th–is a world-renowned, weeklong furniture design event with 2,500 exhibitors and 300,000-plus visitors from 160 countries.

Over the years, Arduino has become a common tool amongst interactive designers looking to bring their installations to life, and Salone del Mobile is a great place to witness these various applications of the board firsthand. After browsing the show floor, don’t forget to visit our booth inside Pavilion 22, Stand G26, Workspace 3.0!

There, attendees will have a chance to play games, participate in giveaways, and learn more about our latest products. Moreover, be sure to get a glimpse of the great “Bridge” project from the Accademia di Architettura of Mendrisio, Switzerland–a fantastic demonstration of how Arduino can be used in architecture.

We look forward to seeing! Until then, more information can be found here!

Arduino Day Turin, Malmö and San Jose: Schedule of Events

As Arduino Day quickly approaches, we are blown away by the tremendous support of the Arduino community with more than 480 events from all around the world.

Arduino Day Turin will feature talks by Massimo Banzi, Federico Musto, and other Arduino members, which will be streamed live on the Arduino Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels. The streaming will begin at 3pm CET. A final program of presentations will be posted as soon as possible at this linkStarting at 11am CET at Toolbox Turin, the agenda will include: two workshops for children in collaboration with Fablab for Kids (registration here and here), a basic and an advanced workshop for adults in coordination with the Casa Jasmina crew (registration here and here), as well as a young Maker activity corner supported by Codemotion Kids. Everything will be free of charge.

Arduino Day Malmö festivities (full program here) will consist of an Arduino project showcase, a panel of discussions with David Cuartielles and local Makers, in addition to a pair of free activities for kids (registration is not necessary). Starting at 5pm, there will also be a live streaming of the talks from Arduino Day Turin.

Last but not least, the Arduino team will be hosting a third official event in San Jose, CA (register here). The program will kick off with a demonstration of Arduino projects, followed by a live video exchange with Arduino Day Toronto. This is a great opportunity for Arduino enthusiasts in America to socialize with one another, exhibit their latest creations, and even learn more about Arduino in the classroom. Everyone is welcome to attend!

We cannot wait to celebrate with our community this Saturday! Until then, continue sharing your plans and inviting your friends to join Arduino Day via social media using the hashtag #ArduinoD17.

Arduino Day Turin: Call for projects and volunteers!

As recently announced, Arduino Day 2017 will be celebrated on April 1st. (If you want to organize an event of your own, please submit your proposal by March 11th.) Though festivities will be taking place worldwide, the Arduino team will be holding this year’s official event at Toolbox Coworking in Turin–which happens to be in the same building as Arduino’s new Italian headquarters.

The Arduino Day Turin program (11am – 6pm), organized in collaboration with Fablab Torino, will include an exhibition area with boards and projects, a talk area with speeches by Massimo Banzi and other Arduino co-founders, a workshop/demo area with free activities for kids–with the Fablab for Kids team–and adults, as well as an Arduino store with special prices and offers.

We are currently seeking projects for Arduino Day Turin’s exhibition space: if you are an individual or team of Makers and would like to show off  your creations, feel free to fill out this form by March 18th. If you are an Arduino enthusiast and want to help out, we are also looking for volunteers (application here) to welcome guests, document the event, and assist the Arduino crew.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing more news and updates on Arduino Day Turin’s agenda and activities. In the meantime, don’t forget to post and invite your friends via ia social media using the hashtag #ArduinoD17! 

Save the date for Arduino Day 2017: April 1st

For the fourth year, we invite the open source community to join us in celebrating Arduino’s birthday on Saturday, April 1st!
