Here are this week’s sale items:
Well, that’s a pretty healthy dose of products - hope you find something you need! Now on to the Retrosparktive!
If you haven’t heard already, in about a week, SparkFun will be moving to new headquarters a couple miles north of our current location. This move is a huge step in our company history and we’re pretty darn excited.
A view as the building started to really take shape.
We officially broke ground on the new building in May of 2013 (although the behind-the-scenes process to get the ball rolling started much, much earlier). SparkFun’s new office building is 80,000 square feet of geek-fueled glory sitting on 4.3 acres of land.
In designing the new building, we worked closely with the architects to create a space that will be utilitarian for SparkFun’s business-y needs, but also foster community and interaction between SparkFun employees with things like a larger exercise space (with a climbing wall!), a single break room (instead of the multiple separate ones we have now) and an open design between departments.
The new building has a bunch of other cool features like a rooftop deck, solar panels galore (and a general focus on being green), and plenty of room to grow!
We’re very excited about the move, but it might disrupt some things over the coming weeks. We’ll be sure to keep everyone informed of anything that might affect orders and look for a post with pictures of the finished space in the next few weeks once we get settled!
