Arduino Day 2015

Arduino has been an undeniable force that has helped power the Maker Movement and the DIY electronics community for a decade. Countless projects and builds have an Arduino development board at their heart. So it is with a hefty dose of geeky glee that we announce our participation in Arduino Day 2015!

Arduino Day is an international event inviting people to share projects, stories and get involved with electronics. We've got a few things planned that we are very excited about - we hope you can join us!

First, to kick off the event, we've partnered with Atmel and their "Tech on Tour" initiative to bring some awesome workshops to SparkFun the day before Arduino Day, March 27th, 2015. Atmel will be on site at SparkFun from 8am to 4pm, doing presentations, demoing cool Arduino-powered robots, and hosting workshops about the new Arduino Zero.

SparkFun will be selling some Arduino and Arduino Compatible boards on the truck, at the Arduino Day sale prices (a sale, you say? More on that below!). We'll are also providing Atmel with some raffle prizes which they will give away during the day.

The Tech On Tour event is free and open to the public -- but we do ask that you register ASAP so we can have an idea of how many people to expect. This is Atmel's second time coming by SparkFun, and if it's any thing like the first, it's going to be awesome!

Now on to the sale! On Arduino Day itself, starting at 12:01 a.m. MDT 3/28/2015 and running until 11:59:59 p.m. MDT 3/28/2015, we're offering heavy discounts on some of our favorite Arduino and Arduino-compatible boards and Arduino accessories. So what's on sale? Let's take a look...

First, the ubiquitous disclaimer -

Please remember: all sales are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! That means no backorders. Arduino and Arduino-compatible boards have a limit of two per customer (that means two of each product - not two total). Note, also, that some of these products are showing out-of-stock, but will be in stock day of.

  • Better watch out.... you might get sued for not defining which Arduino group and then get sued again for supporting one group and not the other.

    • I'm sooooooo disappointed by the Arduino lawsuits. Not that I understand all the legal stuff going on, but it seems such a shame.

      • It is a shame. Even if you can only believe half truths from either side, it is clear that Gianluca Martino was holding out and decided to take advantage of the situation. It may not hold up in court(s), however the lawsuits are required to protect the original Arduino group. I hope that people/companies like Sparkfun and Adafruit can help to turn the tide by keeping royalties moving to the original group.

  • Is the breadboard and arduino holder going to be discounted? I haven't seen the new price posted....

  • Vai ter desconto hoje nos kit arduino uno r3 também?

  • how to buy.. i really dont getting discounted aurduino....

  • How much are the FTDI basic boards going to be on sale for?

  • I have a silly question: are the prices listed here the final sale prices? When I click through to the individual product pages I see that the current prices are the same as the prices shown here.

  • Is the time 8 to 4, or is it 9 to 5? I am seeing both.

  • I'm curious: who is manufacturing the Uno R3s that you have on order? It might come to a choice between it and the Redboard with the FDTI chip in it...

  • The "Register Now" link on the announcement pages doesn't link.
