Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) recently held its Open Hardware Summit in Boston. For me this is one of the few times during the year that I get to hear about open source hardware projects directly from creators and users.It’salso a fine time to play with some tech on location and network with people that have the DIY bug. Public Lab was in the mix with Jeff Warren talking up his reverse engineered toaster design for OSHWA’s new certification process and Bronwen Densmore wielding the new community microscope kit.
The annual Open Hardware Summit took place on September 27th at MIT, and all the exciting and insightful presentation were live streamed to YouTube!

It’s Open Hardware Summit time of year again and Hackaday is holding our 2nd annual Women in Hardware dinner at The Miracle of Science Bar + Grill.
It’s the night before the Open Hardware Summit begins so you’ll have lots of opportunity to meet and chat with others pre-conference. We love it when you bring your finest blinky, flashy, IoT, hacks, wearable, or other DIY items for us to paw (er…. look at), but bringing yourself is the most important.
Dinner is sponsored by Supplyframe/ Hackaday. The Miracle of Science Bar + Grill can accommodate food allergies and preferences. They ask that you just let them know when you order.
All who identify as women are welcome!
Please RSVP so we can call the restaurant in advance to let them know how many to expect.
The application deadline is Monday, April 30th, for the Ada Lovelace Fellowship to attend the 2018 Open Hardware Summit:
The Ada Lovelace Fellowship was founded in 2013 prior to the annual Open Hardware Summit at MIT by Summit Chair Addie Wagenknecht and OSHWA Director Alicia Gibb as a way to encourage women, LGBTA+ and/or other minorities in open technology and culture to actively participate and foster a more diverse community within open source.
For the sixth year, we are excited to offer up to ten Open Hardware Fellowships to members of the community which includes a $500 travel stipend and entrance to the Open Hardware Summit.
By offering the annual travel and summit conference assistance to community members, the Open Source Hardware Association hopes we as a community can encourage more women, LGBTA+ and/or people of color to participate in open source. We have many strong leaders and speakers in our field and we personally want to continue the trend upward.
