Recipe - Change Log

'Recipe' is a specially-made forum on the Seeed Studio webpage ( where makers can upload, share their creative ideas and interesting works by describing the detailed making process of their products, which we called as making a 'recipe' for it.

A 'recipe' is more than a simple tutorial but a 'portal' for the makers to where they yearn. With these 'recipes', fresh makers can build up their favorites by following the recipe instructions step-by-step, and the skilled makers can be inspired to develop something even more functional.

To make our 'Recipe' an ideal place for people to share their products, exchange their ideas and experiences, we have always wanted it to be better and better.
In the following weeks till March 2015, we will keep revising the 'Recipe' according to the feedback collected from our the Alpha Users. All the Alpha Users will be regarded as the contributors to the 'Recipe 2.0' and rewarded with Seeed Productions. Additionally, Alpha Users would have a chance to become the Core Users for Seeed Studio. We will keep in touch with these Core Users and invite them to even more activities launched by Seeed in the coming future. The Core Users will be randomly chosen to experience our new products in advance, or even be sponsored by Seeed for their creative projects. Also, some discounts when shopping at Seeed Bazaar is possible XD. For more details about the Alphas Users please check on the 'Recipe Alpha User Invitation':viewtopic.php?f=16&t=5741

The weekly update of the 'Recipe' will be posted here.
