Workshop Update for December 17th, 2012

Posted on Monday, December 17th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP


We mailed a big batch of free PCBs today. We’ve given away over 600 PCBs since the Zencart store was brought online last year. Server maintenance will happen shortly. It should fix some bad lag for logged-in WordPress users (mostly blog authors).

We ordered some Bus Pirate giveaway sets for Tokyo Hackerspace fundraiser. Tracked down some missing PCBs and sent 7 boards out to be manufactured. Arranging a bulk sticker buy, free stickers with PCBs will be back shortly.

We model and rendered the Bus Pirate and breadboard holder. Which may or may not be used in documentation for a Bus Pirate kit we are designing.

    Congratulations on shipping so many PCBs and thank you for keeping the PCB drawer going! It’s kept me interested in developing my own open hardware, made me a regular customer of Seeed/DP and an avid reader of your blog.
