Fritzing - the past, the present and the future

Paving the way for Fritzing's development

Making electronics accessible to the broad public was mainly made possible by Arduino, the Raspberry PI and last but not least Fritzing. Back in 2009 it was a pain to get from a loose wiring on a breadboard to a PCB. Fritzing came up first with a unique breadboard view and a simple to use PCB layout. Fast forward 10 years Fritzing is still widely used by over 200.000 users but struggles to find a sustainable way to fund its development.

This talk will give a rough introduction to Fritzing including its strength and weaknesses and introduce a roadmap for its further development.
