Open House Video


Earlier this year, SparkFun held an Open House where we invited everyone and anyone to descend on SparkFun HQ for a day of good ol' fashioned geekery. It was a blast - we had free food, a circus performer, workshops, office tours, bouncy castles, and much more. We ended up having over 600 people attend - it was great!

If you were able to make it - thanks for coming! If not, check out the above video for some highlights. We're having our annual Autonomous Vehicle Competition in June, so you still have a chance to come hang out at SparkFun for a day. Hope to see you there!

  • You mentioned the AVC, so I thought I’d put in my 2 cents worth… Could you please have some qualification rounds, so that more bots could participate? Maybe a two day event, Saturday and Sunday? The first day would be qualifications (just get around the building or half-way or something) to weed out the less-abled bots; and maybe the finishers from last year would auto qualify. It would also make the race day event more exciting! What do you think?

  • Hi guys… what is the music on start? I did love that!

    • That’s our very own Pete Lewis (Quality Control). You can check out some of his music here.

      • On that note, who did the music for the “SparkFun at Maker Faire San Mateo 2011” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7f02db_c-A video?

  • That was great. Thanks! I wonder if OPEN houses will catch on? Would I want people to go through my house? “Here’s where I stuff all my old laundry. Sorry for the smell.”
