Arduino has announced over on the official Arduino blog this week that the Arduino day and Genuino day deadline has now been extended for organisers for communities around the world.
Participation for Arduino day is open to anyone who wants to celebrate the awesome micro controller and as a showcase for all the different projects that have been created and are currently under development using the open source micro controller.
The submission has now been extended until tomorrow March 15th for submissions and Arduino have already received over 280 from more than 55 countries around the world. The Arduino blog explains more :
Celebrate with us and add your local event now on day.arduino.cc. If you want to attend one of the events near your town, check the map on the Arduino Day website and remember that this year we are also celebrating Genuino, Arduino’s sister brand for products sold outside of USA. US-based events will be called ’Arduino Day’, while events based outside the US will be called ’Genuino Day’.
Some days ago Massimo Banzi announced that the third edition of the Arduino Day organized directly by the Arduino team will take place on Saturday April 2nd 2016 in Berkeley (CA) at Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation, University of California. Massimo Banzi, Tom Igoe and David Mellis will be present at this event!
“We’re really excited to express our love for open source – said Massimo Banzi, CEO at Arduino – in a day of celebration of our amazing community of makers, developers and partners. 6 million downloads of the Arduino Development Environment in the last year alone show the sheer size of our community.”
