Arduino.cc Opening Office in NYC #WMF15 #MakerFaire @arduino
Exciting Arduino news from World Maker Faire 2015–during Massimo Banzi’s State of Arduino talk he announced that Arduino.cc is opening an office in New York City! The new office will help Arduino.cc grow as it creates hardware, services, and more to help make Arduino a platform for learning and making.
Massimo also gave an update on Arduino Create which will provide a web-based platform to simplify writing and running Arduino sketches right from a browser. The service is in a limited beta right now, but will expand more in October and plan to release early next year.
For the new office in the New York City area Arduino.cc is planning to hire software, hardware, administrative, and other positions to help grow Arduino. If you’re passionate about this opportunity send your details to email@example.com.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
