Spearheading their presence at World Maker Faire in New York, Digi-Key Electronics announced the Roadmap Dashboard on Maker.io, the sponsorship of both the Make Electronics stage and the Make: live stream at Maker Faire, as well as a new partnership with Crowd Supply. Digi-Key has recently launched a roadmap dashboard for maker projects.
This roadmap gives an active checklist for each step of the journey from concept to production.
There are also detailed explanations for everything a designer might run across from start to finish. The only way to access this tool is to be registered on Maker.io and have a projected started.
By using the Dashboard, Maker Professionals will have access to task lists with descriptors and progress bars, a Ladyada (Limor Fried) video with her take on the particular stage, and a listing of tools and resources to help guide them through the stage successfully.
“Bringing tools like the Roadmap Dashboard to Maker Professionals was one of our primary goals all along,” said David Sandys, Director of Technical and Strategic Marketing for Digi-Key. “By engaging with many of our customers, we were able to create a blueprint for success and are excited to share that knowledge with the rest of the Maker Professional community.”
Digi-Key is on-hand in NYC to engage with makers at the Make Electronics stage. Among the products that will be on display at the booth are the Adafruit Industries Adabox005, Shapeoko Table-Top CNC from SparkFun, Pimoroni Raspberry Pi-based kits, and the Nordic Semiconductor Thingy:52.
The company will be showing projects including a DJ controller made from a pizza box, an LED-illuminated skateboard, and an LED and sound pulse visualiser.
For those unable to attend the event, Digi-Key will be sponsoring the Make: live stream to broadcast the entire weekend’s festivities.
