Empowering Innovative Education & Celebrating Community (Maker Faire NYC)

We love New York! The BeagleBoard.org® community gathered at World Maker Faire® 2018 sharing our love of educating with open-source software and hardware in embedded computing. Hundreds of visitors stopped by our booth in the Maker Shed sharing their project ideas with us. Developers of all ages and skills came away with a T-Shirt with their PocketBeagle® purchase.

Enabling Success

It was great to meet-up with our community friends to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of BeagleBoard.org. We saw larger than life projects, like this three story tall clock in downtown Manhattan, running on more than 70 BeagleBone Green boards, along with musical projects, robots, games and race cars.

Celebrating Community

Thank you to everyone who came by to celebrate at our #BringAHack party! We are excited about the future project ideas buzzing around from makers and educators using BeagleBoard.org boards and software for fun and easy ways to open the world of collaborative making.
