World Maker Faire 2015, NYC
I was invited to partner with Atmel at the World Maker Faire 2015 in NYC last weekend. Atmel showcased several small makers in their booth who use their components. I utilize Arduino and Arduino compatible boards, such as the Qduino Mini, which contain Atmel chips, so it is a great partnership. More than 95,000 people enjoyed the Maker Faire over two days.
I demonstrated my Qduino Mini project, the B&W Photo Booth. It was a hit! I modified the printer so that it was wireless.
A big "THANK YOU" to Sander Arts of Atmel, and his team including Donna Castillo, Artie Beavis, Agnes Toan, Michelle Zamora, and Christina Garcia for making me feel at home in the booth. They are an incredible group of people, and they are experts in the field of Maker Marketing!
A great banner for Qtechknow - kapow! Thanks, Atmel!
