We have been very grateful to be able to develop Fritzing as a publicly funded project for the last two and a half years. We were able prove that it is a much-needed tool, and could turn it into something people are actually using in their projects or for teaching.
But the sweet times are coming to an end, and we don’t want to let you down! In order to continue development, we must now try to earn money with Fritzing. Don’t worry, the software will stay free and open-source. Instead, we are introducing complimentary services.
The first one is our own version of an Arduino kit. Dubbed the Fritzing Starter Kit, it contains everything you need to get started with interactive electronics, and a bit more. Check it out at https://fritzing.org/shop/starter-kit. Get one for your project, a set for your classroom, or one for your curious kid. A kit is 55,-€ plus taxes.
With every kit you purchase you are supporting one hour of Fritzing Development!
Stay tuned for more Fritzing services.
