We had a blast at all the Faires. It was Santa Rosa’s first shot at it and the people where great! East Bay Maker Faire was as expected from the people who bring you the larger Bay Area Maker Faire. We couldn’t leave our booths for either event! All in all a good trip. We met a lot of interesting makers and enthusiasts! See you next year!
Good News Northern California! Arxterra is packing up Rosco and taking the show on the road in October for two special events near you.
First off is the Santa Rosa MiniMaker Faire on October 19th at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa. This event is being held in conjunction with the Santa Rosa Fall festival at the same location! This is a great
opportunity for the maker community to reach out to those interested in DIY projects who aren’t familiar with maker Faires! Rosco will have to be on his best behavior!
Next we’re off to the East Bay MiniMaker Faire in Oakland, Ca, on October 20th at the Park Day School and District Art Center in the Temescal District. We look forward to an interesting weekend meeting makers and exchanging ideas! This Faire has been in planning for a while now and we’re looking forward the to checking out the Bay Area Scene!
Discounted tickets for the Faires are available from their respective web sites. Both events should be a great time and if you’re in the area, stop by our booth and say hello! Better yet, get your own telepresent robot up and running on our server so you can be featured at the Faires!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Hope to see you there!
Rosco and Pathfinder were on display at the monthly LA Arduino Enthusiast Meeting. Great turnout and interesting people from all backgrounds. If you’re in the area and love Arduino, a great meeting to check out! People of all ages and backgrounds!

The 2,000+ people who showed up the the OC Mini Maker Faire this weekend were in for a treat. Robots of all sizes, crafts, and demos where everywhere! Everyone was super nice and it was great to get the word out and here everyone’s comments as well as projects they were working on. Really cool stuff! Thanks to all the makers, volunteers, and especially Bequi Howarth for organizing this event for the second year straight. Hopefully, next year will be even better! Also thanks to the creative team at Aosa for the killer signs!
Check out Arxterra mentioned in Makezine for a promotion of the OC Mini Maker Faire! It’s coming soon and should be a real good time. Come out to UC Irvine August 17th and join the festivities!
