Development kit prize marks birthday of element14 Community

The element14 community today celebrates its 4th birthday, and to mark the occasion, members can test their brain power by taking part in a fun competition over the next two weeks.

Members are being encouraged to flex their mental muscles in a brainteaser competition on the community with three winners being selected per week to win a Freescale SabreLite development kit.

Between today and 24th June, three clues will be posted each Monday. Once the clues are revealed for the week, competitors can track down the answer hiding somewhere on the Community (before the Thursday of the same week) and post it in the comments.

Nine Sabre Lite i.MX6 Platform Development Kits will be presented to winners chosen at random who participate in finding the answers to the crossword clues on the Community.

With 15.3 million visits since launch and over 180,000 registered members, a figure that is increasing by 1,500 per week, the community has established itself as the go to resource for design engineers across the world.

With over 4.5 million pages, the element14 Community has roughly the same amount of content as around 1,320 copies of the entire Harry Potter series, according to Google.

The Community supports nine languages and has a presence in 231 countries with some of the most obscure including Burundi and Christmas Island.

As a resource for design engineers some of the most popular groups in the last three months have included ‘Webinars and Training’ and ‘Open Source Software’, as well as the ‘Raspberry Pi’ and ‘Arduino’ groups. These stats and others relating to the element14 Community can be seen in this infographic.
