Maker Faire Bay Area! (Anyone going?!)


I was reading the Sparkfun blog and they announced that they will be at Maker Faire Bay Area from May 17-18!!!

Sounds exciting!

Just wondering if anyone in the :spark: community is visiting as well? I live in Asia and it would be awesome if you guys who are going share some pictures with me or everyone! :smiley:

Cmon do a shoutout here!!! :smiley:

I would shout, but I came down with a sore throat and crud this weekend. I’ll be overdosing on vitamin C and zinc until the Faire!


I’ll be there! Videoing as much as I can for all of my friends back home. This will be my first time to Maker Faire, so I’m super excited. I hope I don’t jinx it, but I keep looking at the weather and it looks great 65/69 and sunny.

I will be there for the first time. Bringing two kids with me to take it all in.


SO excited for Maker Faire! Get better, @wgbartley!! We need you in top form as you’re in charge of all the heavy lifting, driving, cooking, and set up and tear down of the Spark Booth.

I wish I could make it to the Bay area, but cross-country trips aren’t in my budget.

Any chance you guys might make it here to the Atlanta Maker Faire this October?

I’m hoping we make it to some more Maker Faire’s around the world but no definitive schedule just yet.

I might be able to make that one. It sure is a lot closer to home (Chattanooga), but it’s during the busy season at work, so it may be iffy for me.

What if i say i will be there? :wink:

Will you buy tickets to meet me? :smiley:

I would love to be there but its not possible right now!

I was living just above San Francisco last year but had to move back to Indiana for family issues :frowning: I sure do miss the Bay Area and can’t wait to get back out there.

@BDub Please do take plenty of Pictures and video of everything cool so we feel like we didn’t miss anything.

@RWB, that is unfortunate. I would have loved to have met you there! There are a lot of makers here in Ottawa that want me to take pics so be sure the entire Team will be doing that :smile:

I will be there and bringing my two of my kids, ages 12 & 18.


I’ll be there! Can’t wait to meet you guys. You gotta make a trip to nerd mecca once in your life, right?

Take-off is in less than 3 hours for me!!!

This is me at work waiting to head to the airport in a couple hours.


Dude, I’ve been wanting to go since I first heard about it. This is going to be so awexome! Way more awexomer than I ever thought possible.

At the boarding gate guys!

Security is a b****h and will only get worst when I arrive in US.

Time to endure 20 hours of airborne!

20 hours? I don’t envy you @kennethlimcp. Have a safe trip!
