Artistic PCB Design for Terrified Beginners workshop

Hardwaer hacker kliment created a workshop for the recent HOPE conference:

From the Artistic PCB Design for Terrified Beginners workshop

If you’re not familiar with some of those concepts:

  • PCBs stands for Printed Circuit Boards, the things that electronic devices are build on
  • Art means people creating wonderful (or awful) things for other people to enjoy
  • terrified beginner is someone who we all either are or have been at some point

I’m Kliment, and I’m doing this workshop to achieve one or more of the following things:

  1. Get art people to play with electronics
  2. Get electronics people to play with art
  3. Give the two groups above a common language so they can talk to each other
  4. Get people to build something cute and have fun

We’re going to be making a [SAO].  A [SAO] is a small circuit board that gets attached as a decorative or functional addition to one of the many badges that are so popular at hacker events. We’re going to make one that doesn’t do much (except light up). Except it won’t be shitty! It will be pretty! So let’s call it a pretty addon!
