Arduino World Gathering 2021: the official community conference you can’t miss

via Arduino Blog

We’re proud to announce the Arduino World Gathering, taking place everywhere in October 2021. Multiple days packed with workshops, lightning talks and project demos; a virtual event for everyone to enjoy.

This is a conference made by you. Whether you built a cool project with Arduino for fun or profit, you want to share a neat hack with the novice users, or you want to host a workshop a particular skill, technique, or special know-how you’ve acquired – we want you. 

Hackers, creators, designers, engineers, educators. Stop what you’re doing and start putting your ideas together now. A call for proposals will open soon.

We’ll talk about hardware, software, open source, creative technology, interactive art, smart products, professional applications, education, home automation, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and more. All things Arduino!

Enter your email to get notified about the call for proposals and any other AWG updates:

The Official Arduino Day live stream will be hosted on the Arduino website and social media channels from 4pm CET on March 27th, 2021.

Arduino Day 2021 explores the idea of “undistancing,” with a packed roster of talks, demos, presentations, interviews and more that show us how Arduino can bring us together, even when we’re apart.

The schedule of the event will be posted in the next few hours on the Arduino Day page.

Join Us on the Official Arduino Day Live Stream on March 27th

Everything’s in place and ready for the global celebration of Arduino’s sweet sixteenth birthday, including some amazing interviews, demos and talks. See you on March 27th at 4 p.m. CET on Arduino’s online channels.

It’s Arduino’s sweet sixteenth on March 27th, and after such a tough 2020 we wanted to make it an extra special event.

As you’ve probably already seen, we’ve themed this year’s Arduino Day around “Undistancing: open makes us close”, which is all about using everyone’s favorite tech to bring people together and find new ways to connect while we’re physically apart.

Presentations

There are so many topics the Arduino team wanted to cover this year that we’ve got lots of great presentations in the works for you.

Not least of them being a new inclusivity program called #include, that’s being integrated into Arduino as we speak, but there are big plans to bring it out into the community too. Isabela Freire from the Arduino Design Team will be with us to tell you all about that, and how it can benefit your projects, causes and communities.

We also want to show you around some of the top new Arduino devices, with some big reveals that are guaranteed to get people excited across the maker, education and professional sectors. The Nano RP2040 Connect is definitely going to be a highlight you won’t want to miss.

Interviews

Arduino Day is just as exciting to those of us inside the company, as well as you guys out there in the community. It’s at events like this where we get to talk to brilliant people who are making a genuine difference to the world through open-source tech.

Among them is the ever-inspiring Judi Girò Benet and Billy Chen, co-founders of the amazing breast cancer testing device The Blue Box. This incredible project recently won the international James Dyson Award, and it’s a remarkable tale of a first-time maker who brought her vision to life through Arduino and prototyping her own electronics.

We’ll also be revealing the 10 winners of this year’s Arduino Day Community Challenge. So if you’ve submitted a project to the competition make sure you’re online to find out if a treasure trove of Arduino gear is on its way to you.

Talks

Our very own Massimo Banzi is ready to give you a personal tour of the Tiny Machine Learning (TinyML) Kit. Together with Prof. Vijay Janapa Reddi of Harvard University – who specializes in mobile, cloud and edge-centric computing systems – they’ll discuss the impact that devices like TinyML can have in the education sector.

Ubi de Feo from Arduino Tooling Team will then follow with a first-hand demo of the exciting new Arduino IDE 2 beta, in which he’ll show us how this awesome platform represents the next evolution in accessible firmware development. Everything you ever wanted to know about the new IDE, plus a few new features in the pipeline.

Arduino Day Live Stream

So set the day aside on March 27th to join in with the Official Arduino Day live stream, which launches at 4:00 p.m. CET on the Arduino channels.

Get your seat on the front row at day.arduino.cc, and if you’ve any comments or questions in the meantime, just let us know. 

Oh, and if you want to see your face on the live stream, why not record a short video clip of yourself saying a big happy birthday to Arduino, and we’ll add you to the celebrations!

Just post it on social media with the hashtag #ArduinoD21 and we’ll stick a virtual candle in the sweet 16th birthday cake just for you!

Arduino Day Challenge: Submit your project by March 24th for a chance to win some Arduino hardware!

via Arduino Blog

Arduino Day isn’t just Arduino’s birthday. It’s a celebration of the Arduino Community and its achievements. Creativity is the fuel that motivates our users to experiment, build amazing projects, push the boundaries of open-source hardware and software and have a positive impact on people’s lives.

Arduino Undistancing

We’re excited to announce that this year’s Arduino Day contest (you can apply with this form) will be all about highlighting the incredible creativity of our community. This is our way of thanking our amazing users, whose passion, innovation and vision inspire us every day.

Inspiration and community participation have never been more vital than during the pandemic, so this year we’ve made a special effort to instill a feeling of inclusivity and bringing people together. So the whole event this year has been given a theme of “undistancing”. We want Arduino Day to encourage people to collaborate, and create as one; to close the distance between us all virtually, until we’re all able to get back together physically.

The community challenge embodies this same principle of bringing people together, which we’re hoping will provide a great source of inspiration for your projects.

Get Creative with Arduino

The Arduino Day 2021 Challenge will award the top 10 community projects that stand out for their creativity and innovation. The contest is open to everybody, whether you’re a beginner, a pro user, a student, or an artist. Everyone’s welcome to join the contest and share their innovative projects, big and small, with the rest of the community. 

We’ll select 10 projects that we feel demonstrate the most creative, innovative ideas, and send them an awesome Arduino Day box packed with our favorite boards, kits, and goodies, to a value of around €250 EUR/$280 USD. Moreover, the videos of the best projects will be featured on the official Arduino Day live stream that will take place on March 27th across all our channels! 

If you want to join in, please fill out this form and submit your project by March 24th.

Aside from a description, you’ll need to upload a video demonstrating your finished project (and if you’d like to add a happy birthday message to Arduino at the end, that’d be great!). The winners of the contest will be announced on Arduino Day during the live streaming (around 4pm CET). 

Time to get creative – the Arduino Day Community Challenge is coming

via Arduino Blog

Every year, one of Arduino Day’s biggest highlights is the Community Challenge, and 2021 is no different.

As you read this, we’re working feverishly behind the scenes to get this year’s challenge ready, so you can start submitting your projects for a chance to win some awesome Arduino goodies.

Keep an eye out right here on the Arduino blog early next week for all the details, and how to enter your projects into the competition. But in the meantime, why not spend the weekend deciding what kind of cool, creative and crazy contraptions you might want to build?

As you’ve probably already seen, Arduino Day 2021 is themed around the idea of “undistancing”; investigating all the amazing ways the open-source community can connect, collaborate and create as one, even when we’re physically separated.

So that might give you some inspiration for your Community Challenge projects, but most importantly try to think of something that’s uniquely creative, and offers a solution that makes a real social impact.

Your projects don’t have to be big, flashy or complex. Something small, handmade, creative and fun is just as likely to win, so plug your imagination directly into the Arduino IDE, and casually blow our minds!

Stop back next week for more info on how to submit, and until then have a great weekend of Arduino building bliss.
