Final snickerdoodle update of 2015...

snickerdoodlers,

With 2015 in the rearview, there’s nothing but exciting times ahead… Here’s a (super brief) update from the final week of the year:

  1. Board files are off to the presses and we should have the first batch of PCBs in our hands by the end of next week (Jan 8)!
  2. With the last of the passives expected to arrive within a few days, all the parts for the first run are staged for assembly and ready to rock.
  3. Once we get the first few boards assembled, we’ll be running them through the ringer in preparation for the second batch - which will immediately follow qualification of the first.

Needless to say, its going to be a busy and exciting beginning to the new year!!

Finally - in case you missed it - here’s a little snickerdoodle reading material to keep you busy for the next few days…

Note: while the Windows and Linux setup/’getting started’ processes are very similar, we will also be posting Windows guides in the near future.

Happy New Year, everybody - and here’s to a great 2016!
