2 days + 45,000 Attendees + 5,000 ft2 of Microsoft Makers = 100% Goodness
We had an amazing time at Maker Faire this year. It's always so much fun to interact with folks - show all the cool stuff you can build with our tools/technologies, and also get a better understanding of what types of projects people are making.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so check it out if you weren't able to attend:
