This coming Saturday, March 28th, is Arduino Day - celebrate with us!
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 -
So, for the Arduino and Arduino compatible boards, we're going to have Arduino Pros (both 3.3V and 5.5V) for $9.95. Uno's (both SMD and regular ol' R3) are going to be going for a hot $19.95. Pro Mini's (of the 3.3 and 5V variety) are gonna go for $6.95.
Finally, we'll have SparkFun RedBoards, a dev board that combines our favorite features of several Arduinos into one tidy package, going for $14.95! **Please remember: All sales are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! That means no backorders.
Is that all? Not...even...close! Here are all the other awesome products that are going to be running at discounts. These products have the same rules about while supplies last and no backorders, but there is no limit on how many you can grab - have at 'em!
Phew, that's a lot! We hope there is something on there that tickles your fancy...and don't forget to join us either March 27th for Atmel's visit or the 28th for our Arduino Day Sale!
