The first Arduino Developer Summit was recently held halfway up Mont Blanc (Monte Bianco), the tallest mountain in Europe. The goal: bring Arduino community developers together with engineers from leading semiconductor companies to discuss the future of Arduino.
Together with our partner Allnet this weekend we were at Maker Faire Bodensee. Our common booth received a lot of interest and a lot of questions from the visitors. We presented the Brick´R ´knowledge innovative plug system and their Arduino compatible coding set.
Arduino and The General Italian Consulate of Boston invite middle and high school students to a workshop "Arduino for beginners” that would be taught in Italian. The workshop will take place at Dante Alighieri Society of Massachusetts in Cambridge. Register here!
At Arduino, we usually spend our time “making” electronic circuits and programming the sensing and control of the components using microcontrollers. The work is often done sitting at a desk with a computer -- not much physical exertion. We have to find other times to exercise. However, on setup day, after unloading many boxes from a truck into the Expo hall, we then spent the morning “making” the booth -- out of 100% cardboard pieces, pre-cut and pre-printed by CartonLab. It was a physically healthy way to start the long weekend event -- we were sweaty afterward!
