We sent 12 employees to California in May to check out the madness -- we met people who made giant, flame-throwing umbrellas, invented methane-detecting hats, and…this guy. Unfortunately we weren't able to bring our soldering workshops to the event this year, but we did give a nod back to our maker roots and brought several employee projects for people to try out. We met a ton of amazing creators, took a lot of photos, and had an all-around great, geeky time!
A huge thanks to everyone who came by the booth to say hi and check out our inventions! A small group of SparkFun representatives will be attending the New York Maker Faire from September 29-30, and we hope to see you there!
