When is the next Arduino Day?
Next March 28th is Arduino Day. It's a celebration of the first ten years of Arduino in every part of the world. It's an event organized by the community where people interested in Arduino share projects and knowledge and get together to learn new things.
It's open to any group, makerspace, hackerspace or association. It's not just for professionals, if you are new to this world or you are just curious about it you will be more than welcome to participate.
Five official events will be arranged by Arduino in Torino, Malmo, Bangalore, Boston and Budapest. The rest of the events are coordinated by the community and supported by the Arduino crew. Arduino provides a map where you can locate every event around the world so you can find one close to you. New events will be added up until Saturday 28th so keep an eye on it. Find out more.
Arduino Day Zaragoza 2015
eTOPIA, the Center for Art & Technology of Zaragoza, will host the second edition of the Arduino Day Zaragoza. A group of local engineers, but mostly Arduino lovers, have gathered to celebrate and organize this very special day. They all want to share with you this opportunity to be part of an international community where you can learn selflessly and support Open Source and Do It Yourself Movements. Participants will be explaining their projects and talking about their experiences with Arduino and you'll be able to join in various workshops depending on your skills.
It is an event where everybody is welcome, brought to you by a bunch of people spending generously their free time so you can enjoy lots of activities. Meet the organizers here.
Cooking Hacks, together with eTOPIA and Zaragoza's Hackerspace DLabs, is supporting and helping to organize the second edition of this Arduino Day event. We will have our own stand where we will be more than happy to show you our shields and products for Arduino. We are going to talk about our Radiation Sensor Board and we are making a workshop demo where we will show you our e-Health Sensor Platform and the GPRS module.

All throughout the day there will be a prize roulette, you can participate for free just by entering the event. Additionally, in order to give everybody involved in the organization of this day the reward they deserved, there will be prizes for best stand, best workshop and best talk.
Moreover, if you have developed a project with Arduino recently or even during the Arduino day itself you can participate in three different contests: best Arduino project of the year, Line follower robot and Line follower robot development.
Cooking Hacks is contributing to these activities providing all the rewards in every competition, there will be three prizes for each contest (Arduino Uno Boards, Bluetooth Modules and many more).
