From the official Arduino site:

Arduino Day is a worldwide celebration of Arduino’s first 10 years. It's 24 hours full of events – both official and independent, anywhere around the world – where people interested in Arduino can meet, share their experiences, and learn more.

Who can participate?
Arduino invites all Arduino user groups, makerspaces, hackerspaces, fablabs, associations, teachers, pros, and newbies to participate. Let’s make this the biggest birthday party yet!

Arduino Day is on the 29th of March. What can we do to join in on the worldwide event?

Project Showoff Day/Week!

Arduino hackers are almost always working on creating something interesting. Lets have an event inviting users to post pictures and descriptions of their coolest projects, and we could drool over discuss them.

To participate, the user must post:

  • Atleast one picture (necessary)
  • Video link on Youtube (optional)
  • Aim of the project
  • Basic breakdown of components
  • Short description or video^ of working

The projects can be anything but must utilise an Arduino board.

This could be done on either main, meta or chat. After a discussion with Peter, we are leaning towards holding this on a single question on main.

The timeline could also be longer, encompassing a week starting from 23th and culminating on 29th.

  • Having discussed this on chat, I think it sounds like a good idea. It would hopefully be a good way to encourage new folks to sign up and post their projects. Commented Mar 5, 2014 at 15:04
  • I don't really know about the must utilise an Arduino board. It might be better to say it must use any microcontroller that an official board contains. Size may be an issue with an official board. Commented Mar 5, 2014 at 21:36
  • ok say I participate and created something original, how would I know that someone here won't steal my idea? can we have some copyright?

Kickoff of the Blog / Project of the month?

This is similar to AsheeshR's answer. With this we might be able to:

  • Generate new visitors
  • Gain network-wide attention (possibly)
  • Generate much quality content (in one post, I know)
  • Rally excitement for our site from the current users.

It seems like a great way to celebrate Arduino's 10th anniversary.


Partner with Instructibles.com. The people there are CRAZY for the Arduino!

  • Why the downvote? I don't think is a bad idea, and if it is someone should say why
