One day KiCad Crash Course

We’ve asked Michael Welling of Qwerty Embedded Design to come to Reno to drop some knowledge on KiCad, an open source and multi-platform schematic capture and PCB layout tool. Michael uses KiCad for some of his famous designs such as LoFive, PocketBone, and BaconBits. Space is limited and you should have some basic electronics and CAD skills under your belt already to make the most of this unique opportunity.

This event will be recorded and live-streamed to the GroupGets YouTube channel

Teardown: a new hardware conference by CrowdSupply

CrowdSupply is organizing a new hardware con named Teardown in Portland on the weekend of May 11th – 13th:

teardown-collage-02_png_project-tile

Teardown 2018

A party for hacking, discovering, and sharing hardware

Teardown is an event put on by Crowd Supply in association with Make+Think+Code @ PNCA. You can think of Teardown as live-action Crowd Supply, but with fewer cardboard boxes and packing peanuts. We’ll be bringing together hardware aficionados from around the world to celebrate, inspect, create, and, of course, tear down hardware.

There will be long-time Crowd Supply creators and backers, as well as people we’re meeting for the first time. There will be hardware, art, food, drink, puzzles, workshops, tutorials, talks, music, field trips, and friends. Most of all, there will be ideas and projects to explore and inspire. We hope you’ll be there too!

Latest update: Andrew “bunnie” Huang to keynote Teardown

Please considering submitting a proposal like a talk, workshop, demo or installation:

Apertus SMT workshop at Maker Faire Berlin

The Apertus° open source cinema team will be running a Surface Mount Technology (SMT) workshop at Maker Faire Berlin this weekend in their AXIOM booth #121:

Surface Mount Technology (SMT) Workshop

In the course of attending a lot of fairs and exhibitions, we’ve noticed that our cameras and components attract the attention of people from all walks of life. We’ve found that despite our reassurances, people discovering the world of Open Hardware tend to doubt their capabilities where soldering tiny components by hand is concerned.

 

This is why we hold Surface Mount Technology workshops – so that with a little confidence, the right tools and some initial guidance from members of our team, anyone can have great fun learning to make their own PCBs. The workshops are very popular and we have visitors designing pendants and earrings with colour LEDs and blinking patterns – which always creates a buzzing atmosphere.
