Win a FREE Trip to Maker Faire Bay Area 2017 to Showcase your Project!
Arduino is the go-to prototyping board for creating all kinds of IoT electronics projects and hacks. myDevices created the world’s first drag-and-drop IoT project builder - Cayenne - to bring these Arduino projects to life. From home automation to environmental monitoring and smart agriculture, Arduino and myDevices are pioneers in the IoT space; empowering millions of makers and developers across the world to easily build projects, prototypes, and solutions.
To honor all makers and developers, Arduino and myDevices have teamed up for an online project submission contest where the winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Maker Faire Bay Area 2017 to display their project in Arduino’s booth! There is no project too big or too small. Runner-ups will get first access to Arduino’s upcoming release of LoRaWAN™ enabled shields!
