Maker Faire is just around the corner and we have tickets!
Maker Faire New York is just a few short weeks away and, needless to say (I'm going to say it anyways), we are pretty dang excited. For those that don't know, Maker Faire is a wonderful gathering of like-minded individuals who come together to share ideas, show off their projects, and just look at some pretty cool stuff. Everyone is united under the common moniker of "makers." Whether that is someone who makes a quilt out of recycled chip bags, or someone who makes a working Tesla Coil, the scope and range of the projects is mind-boggling.
So yeah, if you want to go, we can't blame you - these epic events are worth seeing. Fortunately, we have tickets! The face value of these tickets is $25 - we have them for $10. But wait, there's more!
In reality, you're not only getting a MFNY ticket, but a t-shirt. It works like this - buy a ticket and we'll ship you a specially marked Maker Faire ticket. Take it to our booth and we'll hook you up with a SparkFun t-shirt (which is normally $10 anyways). Our goal here is definitely not to make money, but to simply encourage the SparkFun community to attend (there is nothing that makes our day like talking with our customers). We'll be running our soldering workshops as well, so if if you want to try your hand at some soldering, come see us! Hope to see you out there!
