Arduino Create is a one stop shop for Makers

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Create_main

More than 10 years ago, we set out to simplify electronics with easy-to-use, open-source hardware. 10 years later, we’re looking to do the same for Internet of Things development with Arduino Create — an integrated online platform that enables Makers to write code, access content, configure boards, and share projects.

Traditionally speaking, going from an idea to a fully-functional IoT device has been a tedious process even for the most advanced engineers and developers. Until now, they would have to frequently switch back and forth between various tools and screens, from IDEs to cloud services. That’s why Arduino has set out to launch a one stop shop for the Maker experience, which will change the way you create, collaborate and communicate with your projects and the rapidly growing community.

Discover the latest Arduino build for ARM Linux

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

ARMIde

As many of you already noticed, we recently released a new “Linux ARM” version of the Arduino IDE available for download on our website together with the usual “Linux 32bit” and “Linux 64bit.”

This release enables you to run the Arduino Software (IDE) on many of the mini PC boards based on ARM6+ processors currently on the market, including Raspberry Pi, C.H.I.P., BeagleBone, UDOO… just to name a few.

Win free hardware in the world’s largest Maker survey

Monday, May 16th, 2016

As the Maker Movement continues to grow, do you ever find yourself wondering which platforms are used the most? Which programming languages are developers’ favorites? Which online tools do beginners frequent? Which boards do hobbyists prefer? Rather than second guessing, Hackster.io has partnered with today’s top hardware and community leaders, including Arduino, to collect, analyze and share real data with the largest Maker survey on Earth.

This is your opportunity to have your voice heard, so we as a whole can build better products, smarter services and fitting events for people like you. Whether you’re a seasoned engineer or just starting out, a lifelong hobbyist or a parent, the survey’s questions will help support the global community we all call home.

Take the survey now! (And you could also win one of 100+ free boards!)

And this week’s Instagram giveaway winner is…

Arduino is headed to Maker Faire Bay Area!

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

MakerFaireSM

Maker Faire is a three-day, family-friendly event that has been celebrating the DIY Movement for the last 10 years. The ‘Greatest Show & Tell on Earth’ is designed for creative, innovative people of all ages and backgrounds, who like to tinker and love to make things.

MassimoBayArea16

In just a few days, the Arduino team will be in attendance for the 11th annual Maker Faire Bay Area as a Goldsmith Sponsor. Those heading to the San Mateo on May 20th-22nd will want to swing by our booth (#2321) and join us for some inspiring talks, especially the highly-anticipated State of Arduino by Massimo Banzi on Saturday at 12:30pm.

Bring IoT features to Arduino boards with the Yún Shield!

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

YunShield-context

Great news for Makers working on IoT projects! The Arduino and Genuino Yún Shield — now available on our online store for $49.90/€43.90 — is a device that enables you to easily bring Yún features to Arduino and Genuino boards supporting shields.

It’s the perfect shield to start connecting your projects to the Internet thanks to the Yún Web Panel and the dedicated ”YunFirstConfig” sketch. This new feature, implemented in the new Arduino Software (IDE) 1.6.9, allows you to manage your shield preferences and upload your sketch on the attached Arduino or Genuino. Like the previous Yún board, the Yún Shield uses the Bridge library and extends your board capabilities using the Linux processor.

The new Yún family runs the latest version of OpenWRT (15.05 Chaos Calmer), which offers an additional layer of security and a large amount of bug fixes over previous Yún distribution. The precompiled package list is huge (we have more than 4,000 packages ready to be installed), and if you still can’t find what you are looking for, you can use the community provided repositories since the new release is fully modular (not a fork).

Want to learn more? Explore all there is to know about the Yún Shield, including its documentation via the links below:
