The idea to join in a YouTube event accidentally becomes our new favorite series.
August 4-10 is Geek Week on YouTube. All week, they’re hosting video content celebrating all things geeky, with a different theme every day. As bona fide geeks, when we caught wind of Geek Week we decided to join in. We thought it would be cool to make some videos on a few resident SparkFunions and what they geek out about.

Evan Spitler from Tech Support discusses a lifelong passion for robotics
Dean Diamond in Purchasing shows us how he makes handmade drums
We wouldn’t be here if we weren’t all passionate about electronics, but it turns out a lot of the folks at SparkFun have widely varied interests that go beyond microcontrollers and LEDs. We ended up loving the insight into our coworkers' passions so much that we’re hoping to extend the project and turn it into a more regular feature. What do you guys think?
Happy Geek Week!
