Starting thursday the 3rd of October, Maker Faire Rome is finally opening in the italian capital, gathering hundreds of makers from all over Europe. We’ve been working on it for some months together with Riccardo Luna and Asset Camera team: finally it’s time to enjoy the moment.
On thursday you can attend the conference “How to reMake the World” with Riccardo Luna and Massimo Banzi, curators of the Faire, along with international guests including David John Gauntlett, Raffaello D’Andrea, Dale Dougherty and many more. It’ll be a total immersion in the universe of 3D printing, open source electronics and the culture of making. Discover all the speakers at this link.
You can visit Arduino booth (Zone D2) during the weekend where you’ll find a series of one-to-one stations for different level of knowledge, from beginners to pro. You’ll be able to explore together with Officine Arduino/FablabTorino crew:
Many people have been asking and the answer is YES! There will be an Arduino Store selling most of the Arduino products at the Faire (Arduino Yún included!). You’ll find also some other interesting products like kits from Make, O’Reilly books, Little Bits, kits by Prusa, Ultimaker, Plug&Wear and more.
Starting at the conference, there will be Massimo Banzi, all the other Arduino’s founders (Tom Igoe, David Mellis, David Cuartielles, Gianluca Martino) and Officine Arduino/Fablab Torino crew participating to panels, talks and debates. Check Maker Faire program in the next days to learn about the details. Don’t miss this chance to have your board autographed!

This year, once again we are participating at World Maker Faire for the whole weekend. You can come and visit our booth at the Hall of Science. We’ll have 4 hands-on demo tables allowing you to know more about Arduino boards, try using the IDE and experiment with the hardware yourself.
We’ll be demonstrating the new Arduino Yún and how to use Temboo. We also set up a special table to experiment with the Arduino Robot and allow visitors to try its wonderful capabilities live.
On Saturday afternoon there’ll be a couple of presentations you can attend:
– Massimo Banzi: The state of Arduino
Where: Innovation Stage
When: Saturday 2:30 PM 3:00 PM
– Michael Shiloh: Getting Started With the Arduino Yún
Where: Electronics Stage
When: Saturday 4:30 PM 5:00 PM
Looking forward to see you all at the Electronic Pavillion, ZONE C (check out the Makerfaire MAP in PDF)
Make Magazine published a short report of the panel taking place at the Hardware Innovation Workshop, yesterday in New York City. Massimo Banzi and Jason Kridner, co-founder of BeagleBoard, were on the stage talking about the evolution of microcontrollers:
Makers love to develop on their favorite microcontrollers. The creators behind two of the most popular took boards the stage at the New York Hardware Innovation Workshop (HIW) in a panel moderated by MAKE’s own Matt Richardson. Although makers might like to argue about which is the best platform, there was plenty of common ground for these two panelists.
Massimo Banzi, Co-Founder of the Arduino Project, began the session with a short discussion on how and why Arduino got started.
“Every time you design a system to do everything, you end up with a system designed to do nothing,” Massimo says. “The challenge is to build a platform that solves a simple problem for a specific group of people: beginners for example.”
The greatest show and tell on earth is coming to Rome next October and it’s now time to organize and register to the events!
This is the agenda of MakerFaire Rome:

Last week, Limor Fried and Phil Torrone had Massimo Banzi as special guest in their Saturday night live show Ask an Engineer!

It’s been a while now we have been testing and bringing ArduinoTour Workshops all over Italy and – here and there – around Europe. And we are happy to inform you that this powerful workshop format is soon landing in Singapore on August the 3rd-4th, hosted by The Hub Singapore, a cool co-working space willing to spread the Arduino word within its walls and beyond.
During the 2-day workshop participants will learn the basics of Arduino (what we call the Arduino Alphabet) and have the chance to see it in action on different scenarios. They will produce their own project using the Arduino Starter Kit given to the workshop attendees.
The ArduinoTour is a way to meet & share experiences. For this reason it’s traditionally opened by a public presentation of Arduino which is going to happen on friday the 2nd of August at 7:00 PM at the-Hub. (download hi-res flyer)
Book your participation now and join the Arduino world.
Next week, we’ll be in London at Hack The Hackathon‘s developer competition to support the teams in experimenting with “smart” devices. After the great hackathon we had during the Arduino Camp in Torino, we’ll move to London for the 48-hour competition addressing an array of possible projects falling loosely into three broad challenge categories: Social Good, Sustainable Business, and Smarter Living.
The event (5th-7th July), hosted by the HUB Westminster in Piccadilly Circus, is:
designed for technical and non-technical innovators, designers, and engineers to build working prototypes, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories, work with expert mentors, meet new people, and scout for teammates to work on new or current projects.
If you are an innovator, designer, coder, information architect, and social media lover passionate about Learning, Exploring, Building, Sharing, and Mastering state-of-the-art technologies in a nurturing and exciting environment where everyone is a winner, then you should take this chance.
You can participate to the event with or without an idea or a project in mind. And don’t worry if you are coming by yourself, without a team already formed. The important thing is to register and arrive on time at the location hosting us for the weekend.
During the 48-hour developer competition, Hack The Hackathon will also host Africa Builds an exploratory information session and open discussion to identify a core team of like-minded collaborators who want to inspire change among those most affected by and most able to combat the challenges facing the nations of Africa.
Federico Vanzati, one of our Arduino mentors, will be there and happy to meet you and show you all about Arduino. Looking forward to see you in London!
