Mike Szczys writes about 2017 Open Hardware Summit last week in Denver:
This yearly gathering brings together the people and businesses that hold Open Hardware as an ideal to encourage, grow, and live by. There was a night-before party, the summit itself which is a day full of talks, and this year a tour of a couple very familiar open hardware companies in the area.
I thought this year’s conference was quite delightful and am happy to share with you some of the highlights.
The OSH Park table was not only showing off a PCB panel as their signage, but had our favorite SMD solder challenge boards on hand.
Pamela Liou gave the 2017 Open Hardware Summit keynote last Thursday in Denver (skip to the 6 minute mark):
Pamela spoke about her desktop loom project:
We are excited for the 2017 Open Hardware Summit this Fall in Denver, and we’re pleased to see the Ada Lovelace Fellowship is now open for applications:
The Ada Lovelace Fellowship encourages women, LGBTA+, and/or other minorities in the open technology movement to both participate and nurture an incredible, diverse community within open source.
For the fifth year running, we are ecstatic to offer TEN (10) Open Hardware Fellowships to members of the community. This includes travel assistance and entrance to the 2017 open Hardware Summit!
We are at an exciting point in time for open source and hope to encourage everyone, no matter their walk in life, to embrace and participate in this incredible movement!
Please join us tomorrow night on Open Hardware Summit eve for a delightful mix of #BringAHack and open house!
When: Thursday, October 6th. 6 PM to Midnight.
Refreshments will be served. No problem if you won’t be able to bring a “hack”. There will still be plenty of interesting things to experience!
