Welcome to 2017, Year of the 96Boards!

Robert Wolff

Happy New Year!

NOTE: Pair this blog with this episode of OpenHours!

Yes that’s right, it is now the year 2017, and here at 96Boards headquarters (i.e. everywhere) things are anything but stagnant. In fact, for some time now the team has been hard at work devising a plan for this new and prosperous year. Still, while we do anticipate an action packed year for 96Boards (Spoiler alert: find out more later in the blog), it is always important to take a look back at all of the exciting things we have accomplished and seen in 2016…

Still here!?

While I am sure there are plenty of other things I may have missed in 2016 around 96Boards, these were some of the highlights I was able to salvage and save. Yes, I am a digital hoarder! This means 2017 will be quite a busy year for me… Just wait, things are about to get crazy!

Now, since I have pretty much shared over one hundred links, I will give you all a minute to click around and enjoy the content…Back already? Great! I think it’s time to summarize a bit.

For 96Boards announcements and fun, be sure to visit and follow all of our social media channels! Seriously though, if you could only choose one, I would recommend Twitter :)

Dig around the docs and website, create a new forum thread, and/or post a question in the chat, myself or one of the 96Boards developers would love to help!

So I think it’s time for the new year teaser, what can you expect from 96Boards in 2017?

Let’s take a look… How about some major website changes, a newsletter revamp, and a first time ever weekly digest! You will see some BIG social media pushes, with giveaways, member sponsored content, tutorials and mini-series curriculum around 96Boards(free and fun!). Get ready for hackathons, multiple Linaro Connects, and did I mention more boards, accessories and mezzanine products? 2017 is chalked full of surprises, and I can’t wait to share them with everyone!
