Nathan Seidle, the founder and CEO of SparkFun, is in the process of buying an undeveloped property just north of Highway 52 in the Boulder Tech Center. Plans for the 4.31-acre site call for a two-story, 80,000-square-foot building for SparkFun’s headquarters.
The new site is located just outside the Boulder city limits.
The new property will provide some breathing room for SparkFun, which is coming close to outgrowing its home at 6175 Longbow Drive. After a couple years of double- and triple-digit sales growth, the firm that once occupied a quarter of the Gunbarrel property now fills the entire 52,000-square-foot building.
SparkFun’s new headquarters, at 6333 W. Dry Creek Parkway, will be built-to-suit and developed to serve the company’s needs now and offer flexibility for the future, he said.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
