Seeed Studio Monthly: All You Wanna Know from Jan to Feb

Yes, I know, I know. It has been 2 months since our last monthly wrap-up which was published in December. We were happily involved with our family for the biggest traditional festival here in January, which cut off lots of time for us to deliver useful content for the community. So, we decided to put the volumes of January and February together here.

#Notes at the end.

If you’re new to this session, here is a brief intro. We have gotten dozens of requests over the years for a Seeed Monthly Newsletter. Although we already have a newsletter for weekly updates, we still need a place to host overall information about what’s happened on a monthly basis. It can offer an efficient and friendly way to get updated for the whole community. And that’s what we expect for our Seeed Monthly Wrap-ups. Instead of putting it as a subscribe-to-read, we’re publishing them on our blog, keeping it as open and accessible as possible for the whole community. For each entry, we will cover awesome projects from the community, campaigns that we are running, new products, IIoT Solutions, and even secret recipes for prototyping and manufacturing.
