Portland Mini Maker Faire recap

Portland Mini Maker Faire made for a fantastic weekend at OMSI earlier this month.  We’ve shared our favorite photos of the fun.

Thanks to everyone that visited our booth.   It’s wonderful to meet our customers in person and hear about their projects!

Sergey Kiselev and his son stopped by our booth to show us projects they’ve created including this Intel Quark environmental sensors board.

People enjoyed seeing our full PCB panels in person and learning more about the manufacturing process.  We’ll also have them on display at our open house on Open Hardware Summit eve next week.

Low Voltage Labs had a bunch of fun easy-to-solder kits:

Mark Keppinger created this blinky board kit for people to learn to solder at the faire:

Portland Mini Maker Faire at OMSI showcases the amazing works of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.

The sheer variety of the more than 100 exhibits, most of them hands-on, will boggle the mind.
