As mentioned in my previous post I attended the Maker Faire and more specifically the SparkFun SMD soldering workshop. The workshop was for a Simon game. Contrary to popular belief, I don't have the highest interest in actually playing Simon. Yes it is a fun game, but I wanted to learn SMD, and plan on using it as a 1.5V, 4x LED lit button pad Arduino

Maker Faire 2010

I visited the Maker Faire in San Mateo on May 22. We had a carpool arranged with an exhibitor who had to be there at 7, but it fell through that morning because our alarms didn't wake us up. We invoked our backup plan of driving to the Maker Faire and arrived in San Mateo ~15 minutes before the gates opened. We parked in one of the free parking lots and walked to the faire. When we made it to the actual faire, we were greeted with a block-long queue of people waiting to get in. Thankfully some one spotted our Will Call receipt and pointed us to the much shorter Will Call line.
