ETA on development kits?

Hi there,

I was selected to enter MAD and, following the new timeline we got via mail DevKits should be ready late this month.
Still, I haven't received news from this challenge for two months.

Are devkits still expected to be ready by end of month?

    Hello Miguel,

    Thanks for contacting us. We are still planning on sending out the development kits at the end of this month. We will let you know when they go out so that you check your mail.

    I also haven't received my kit either. I was accepted in to the competition and filled out the form to choose which kit to use but never got a confirmation that the device was going to be shipped to me. Anyway you can check whether one is still headed my way and any idea of an eta?

    I received a mail on 11.4 telling me the devkits were going to be sent in about a week and I'd receive a mail with my tracking number.

    It's been 2 weeks and I haven't received anything, can you give me some info on this, Glenn?

    Hello Miguel,
    You should receive your tracking number within the next 24 hours! When you get your kit we would love it if you shared some photos of you working with it with us. Thanks for your patience!

    Yours is on the way as well! Please check your email over the next 24 hours for your tracking code.

    Hi Glenn,

    That's great to hear. Any news about extending the deadline? :)

  •   •   about 3 years ago

    As of this moment we haven't changed the deadline. But your feedback is important to us. So if you think you need more time please let us know.

    Oh, no, do not worry about that, I just asked because one of the latest mails hinted at extending the deadline.

    Anyways one more month would be really nice :P

    Hi Glen,

    Even I had got an email saying that I will be getting further information when my Kit is shipped. But I have not yet got further updates or the Kit.

    Can you please check the status for my kit and share updates?

    And yes, considering the Kit is yet to arrive, even I would vote for an extension!

    Hi Glenn,

    Yes! The email had landed up in Spam. I have received the tracking details. Thanks! Eagerly awaiting my Kit to arrive.

    Regards

    Hello folks,

    I'm ashamed to admit it but yeah, my tracking number mail was sitting in my Spam folder...

    Anyways, it was still in CA 2 days ago, now it says something like "Package transferred to local post office/No further tracking information will be available" so I guess it'll still be a few days until I get it.

    And if it isn't too much trouble, I'd like a deadline extension, kits are arriving much later than we expected them to, and Christmas is around the corner, which may reduce the time I'll be able to dedicate to MAD (Family members will expect me to sit with them to have huge dinners instead of programming, duh!).

    Cheerio!

    Hello Miguel,

    If you haven't already received you package you should get it soon. Also, thanks for your insight into a deadline extension. We are strongly considering extending the submission date. If we do everyone will be updated via email. So please make sure to check your messages in case it goes to your spam box again.

    Best regards,
    Glenn Cameron
