MCM Electronics Hamvention / Bay Area Maker Faire Recap

Posted by Greg on Jun 7, 2016

On the weekend of May 20-22nd the MCM Electronics team participated in two large events in different parts of the country. Hamvention which is located in our hometown of Dayton and the Bay Area Maker Faire in the San Fransisco area.

Hamvention 2016

We attended Hamvention for a third year in a row and had a great time meeting so many customers and getting to show off the latest Raspberry Pi and our line of weatherproof cases. We brought along five Raspberry Pi demos each showing off a different aspect of the single board computer's capabilities. There was also a huge array of other vendors selling everything from 3D printers to telegraph machines. Outside they had a massive flea market selling every imaginable type of electronics from the past 50 years. If you have never attended it is certainly worth the experience.

Bay Area Maker Faire 2016

We displayed at the Bay Area Maker Faire for the first time ever! Our booth was right next to our friends at the Raspberry Pi Foundation and just across from Ultimaker 3D Printers. We met a lot of great people and saw a plethora of great maker projects throughout the faire. We really had an amazing time and if you have a chance to go to a Maker Faire we suggest you go!
