This group is based upon the idea that you are interested in hanging out and discussing hardware. Please bring a piece of hardware to show off or talk about. Are you interested in hardware, but you haven’t built anything yet? Show off software you have built! Or come prepared to talk about the projects you want to build.
There are no organized talks, it’s literally a show and tell at a bar or restaurant. In case you missed it two paragraphs ago, bring hardware. Seriously, just bring anything to talk about 🙂
Chicago Southside Mini Maker Faire is this Saturday, September 15th, from 11a-5p at Woodson Regional Library, 9525 S Halsted
The next Hardware Happy Hour (3H) Chicago is on Tuesday, September 11th, at On Tour Brewing Company
Note: you do NOT need to be a founder to attend. As long as you enjoy chatting about hardware, then you should have a good time at 3H 🙂
Hope to see you there!
We are proud to be a sponsor of Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire 2018 this Saturday, May 5th, at Carl Schurz High School:
the first and largest officially licensed Maker Faire in the Chicagoland area. We are a local, grassroots celebration of the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit in Chicago, focusing on education across all ages and social groups. Our makers represent a mix of beginners and experts, hobbyists and professionals, groups and individuals, and all ages, backgrounds, and interests. With a shoestring budget and only a dream, our inaugural Mini Maker Faire in April, 2012 was a smashing success thanks to the 50+ makers who shared their talents in 3D printing, robotics, jewelry making, and urban farming, just to name a few. Now with close to 100 makers, we’re still growing. Comeexperience it for yourself!
Tomorrow, Saturday March 31st, at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago:
On Saturday, March 31 we’re keeping our doors open from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. as we host the MSI Chicago Mini Maker Faire! Join some of the most fascinating, curious people—from engineers and artists, to scientists and crafters—in a celebration of local maker culture. Learn how to become an innovator yourself by speaking one-on-one with makers, and leave inspired and ready to invent.
Look for our Drew Fustini in purple!
