OSH Park is at Maker Faire Bay Area! Laen, Dan and Drew are scouring the fairgrounds to see awesome projects makers have built with purple PCBs. Please let us know on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ if you’re here at Maker Faire, too!
We are excited to attend these two talks at Maker Faire:
Sunday, May 22, 11:00am on the Make: Electronics stage
At Wayne and Layne, we use KiCad to make our printed circuit boards. We’ve been helping make KiCad better. There have been a lot of changes in the past year! From outside the project, it can be difficult to see where the project is going, so we will discuss recent and upcoming improvements.
Sunday, May 22, 3:30pm at Center Stage
A walk through the process of bringing Forrest Mims’ classic drawn circuit designs to life. This talk will cover both the art of building hardware true to the vision of his books, and the practical aspects of creating a strong aesthetic and bringing graphics into the hardware world.
Here’s some of the awesome makers and projects we’ve spotted so far at Maker Faire:
Rocket Dept has terrific Learn to Solder kits in lovely purple ‘n gold, located in the main expo hall. They debuted a new kit called Hue which is big adjustable RGB LED:
PocketNC is showing off their new FR4 Machine Shield which is made entirely from one of our PCB panels (we can do white for orders of 1,000+ sq inches). Find them in Redwood Hall (a.k.a. Maker Pro building) next to PancakeBot:
