Encouraging people to share projects and tutorials has always been central to Arduino’s mission of democratizing technology. Learning from the work of others is very important as we always felt that most makers like to start from an existing project and evolve from their own creation. If you’ve been following Arduino for a while you know we went through a few tools in our history, from “Playground” to “Scuola” arriving at our current “Project Hub” in search of always simpler and better ways to share.
In 2014, we collaborated with Hackster.io to establish “Project Hub”, based on the Hackster platform. Together we grew a space that hosts thousands of well-documented projects submitted by all of you. Although this partnership is very important to us, Arduino will move Project Hub in-house. Building our own project sharing platform allows us to further integrate with Arduino Cloud and better align with our new features.
Here’s what to expect: The new Project Hub will launch in beta on December 29th and will be available at the usual address https://arduino.cc/projecthub — bookmark it now! The old Project Hub will no longer be available after the end of December.
If you have created your projects with an Arduino account they will be automatically migrated to the new platform with this schedule:
- Phase 1: Projects created before August 2022 will be available on the new platform on January 1, 2023.
- Phase 2: New projects created between September 2022 and December 2022 will be available on the new platform on February 1, 2023.
If you’ve used your Hackster.io account you’ll have to re-register on Arduino and transfer them manually.
We are planning an amazing competition with great prizes to encourage users to share even more projects. We really want to break all the records. Stay tuned for the details that will be announced in January.
We want to thank Hackster.io for all the help and support throughout the years and we can’t wait to continue exploring our partnership, bringing more engaging activities to our global communities.
