Join us as we take an infographic-y look back at SparkFun's past year, and welcome in a new one.
Well, here we are at the end of another eventful year at SparkFun!
2012 was an exciting one for us - we traveled all over the country, made a whole heap of new friends, survived the apocalypse, taught some folks about electronics and learned a little bit about a lot of important things. We have nothing but high hopes and enthusiasm for the coming year and are, as always, so grateful to greet a new year as part of such a strong community - thank you for another wonderful year of support! We wish you all a 2013 filled with fun, inspiration, and just enough safety to give you some great stories to usher in 2014 with.
SparkFun will be closed tomorrow (January 1) as we all recover from an excess of gratitude, and we'll resume operations on Wednesday the second. But for now, let's take a look back at some highlights from 2012 with one o' them fancy infographics (thanks to Pamela, one of our graphic designers).
See you in 2013!
Yeah, we're doing some work in that department.
Once upon a time we had a rough prototype of a mobile.sparkfun.com worked up, but it's looking like people are getting the idea that separate mobile sites are the wrong approach. And the tooling for doing responsive stuff has improved quite a bit. Which is all to the good - I can't tell you how much time I've spent in the last year or so hating redirects to crippled mobile sites and popups asking me if I want to download someone's crashy, half-baked app.
We're also planning to take this approach with internal software - we'll be doing inventory control and such on tablets using our existing in-house web app.
Awesome - thanks!
Happy new year!
That is a great looking timeline! Here's to 2013!
Woo! Here's to another great year of technological exploration!
thanks for sharing this awesome timeline ! I applaud SparkFun for making an effort to spread knowledge and celebrate technology
Hats off to Pam, that is a sharp graphic.
Will we see a responsive website in 2013? I do so much web browsing on my phone anymore would be great to see a SF.com that is more flexible.
