    Friday Roundup

    Published on - May 4, 2012 by shinotanaka


    We're going to start this week's Friday Roundup with a major announcement. Tinkercad is going to have a booth at the Bay Area Maker Faire and we want YOU to be there! Starting today, we're giving away one-day passes in pairs. Right now, like right this second, we're doing a giveaway on Twitter with hashtag #tinkercadmaker. A winner will be selected at 4PM PT today. Additional Tinkercad Maker Faire facts: The team designed some pretty slick tees for the event. While they're going to be on sale (limited quantity), we'll be giving a few away on Saturday and Sunday. Our booth? It's gonna be way legit.
