Back in January, we hosted the third version of SparkFun Free Day. This year, we gave away $200,000 worth of $100 SparkFun credits over the course of the day. Once again, it was mayhem.
This time around, we wanted to see how people experience Free Day from the "other side", so we sent teams to Virginia, Texas, and Connecticut visiting North Street Labs, ATX Hackerspace, and New Mountain Innovations. We hung out with them on Free Day, documented their experience, toured their labs/spaces, and generally disrupted their lives for a couple days. It was a lot of fun and, again, we thank all of you who let us crash your party.
So today, we have the final installment of our documentary (Vimeo version here). Watch as we join our customers/friends as they attempt to win a share of the prize and get glimpse behind the scenes at how Free Day goes down at SparkFun HQ. If you missed Part I, you can check it out here. Thanks again to all those who participated in Free Day and congratulations to those who won!
