The Spirit of Hackaday Shines in Shenzhen

The Spirit of Hackaday Shines in Shenzhen

Surprisingly the most-asked question was “what are you selling?”. It took some explaining but it was universally appreciated that we want people to be excited about electronics and to make learning a part of who they are. We were really lucky to have friends of Hackaday stop by and help out. [Holly Hudson] brought goodies and helped staff the booth. [Sprite_TM] — hacker extraordinaire and 2014 Hackaday Prize Judge — helped with circuit building for more than an hour. And 2015 Hackaday Prize Judge [Akiba] stopped by as well. On Sunday we were especially stretched thin as [Sophi] was giving a talk and some of us wanted to be there to hear it! [Chris] from Seeed Studio saved the day by donating a few hours from his busy schedule. Thank you all!
