Salutations, my dear friends, and welcome to yet another Friday Product Post! This week we have three new IoT boards from Particle, with corresponding kits, and a new revision to the SparkFun gator:bit that fixes a few of the issues you shared with us.

Point of order: starting today, we are launching a Brand Ambassador program! We will be releasing an official blog post about it Monday, but we wanted to give our Friday readers a chance to get their foot in the door first. If you are interested in joining the SparkFun team as someone who helps promote us and our products at conventions, online and at makerspaces head over to our Brand Ambassador page to fill out an application!

Let's take a look at our new products!

Using the gator:bit is a good haBIT to pick up!
