The time has finally come - Maker Faire New York is this weekend, September 17th and 18th. That means the SparkFun crew is about to head out to the "city that never sleeps" for some good ol' fashioned Maker Faire madness. We hope that we see a lot of you out there. In case you are heading out, check out this map for our booth location:
See us there, down in the corner by the train tracks? We are also near the hackerspaces, which is pretty awesome. We are excited to meet with our customers, check out some awesome projects, and hold a few of our famous soldering workshops. Once again we'll be asking for donations, this time to benefit two local charities - Expanding Your Horizons and the Food Bank for New York City. This year we are bringing four kits - the Big Time Kit (SparkFun's own DIY watch), the Multimeter Kit, the ever-popular Simon PTH, and the Weevil Eye (a DIY night-light and e-textiles kit that responds to how dark the room is).
We are really excited to head out to NYC for the weekend and we hope many of you can come. Make sure to swing by our booth to take a soldering class, get some swag, or just have a chat. While we are at it, what should we do while we are in the city? We won't have a ton of free time, but are there any great restaurants or bars in Queens we can't miss? Hidden sights to see? Let us know in the comments! Cheers!
