Our Summer vacation is approaching, please plan your orders on time

summer

Please note: We will be closed for the first 2 weeks of August.  Every time our vacation approached it becomes a little bit tensely here as many people decide to order in the very last moment.

All small orders which are received and paid by 10.00 o’clock Bulgarian time on 31th of July, have decent chances to be shipped same day, for the bigger orders if we can’t manage to handle them same day they will be shipped on August 17th when we are back from our vacation, so please plan your orders in advance next week and do not wait Friday to place your order :)

Reminder – Tomorrow is our Help Day

Reminder tomorrow is our Help Day.

OLIMEX Help day

Help Support Advice Assistance and Guidance on a signpost

What is help day?

It’s once per month event (usually at the end of the month) where you can come to our place and get help with using our boards.

Sure you can bring stuff not made by us, and we will try to help with it too, but we are most familiar with our own boards and will be of much more help with them.

If you have project using our boards and something doesn’t work as expected, bring it here and we will do our the best to help you.

Our engineers will be available and you can ask questions and get help from the developers.

Or if you plan something but hesitate how to implement it we may help you to pickup the proper boards/sensors for it.

We do not guarantee that we will solve for minutes every problem you have, but at least we will try.

No e-mails – but good old face to face communication. Unfortunately we can offer this just once per month :)

Our first Help day for May will be on May 30th – Saturday, starting from 14.00 o’clock to not rush the people who will come from outside Plovdiv.

How much does it cost to participate in the Help day? Nothing the event is free (but we will appreciate if you bring with you couple of beers hahaha).

It will be fun and hacking, so join us.

Olimex is OSHWA member now

cropped-OSHWA_Logo_2012B_1000

I already blogged for my visit in Rome for the OSHW Summit 2014.

While chatting there with Drew Fustini he asked me if Olimex is OSHWA member and I reallized that while being busy with developing OSHW projects Olimex actually forgot to become an formal OSHWA member, so when I returned back I quickly rectified this and applied for Supporting Corporate Membership.

Few weeks later I got this in my post box these nice stickers!

OSHWA

Now I just have to figure out  where to place them proudly!
