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!
The Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH) is new annual conference for those building and using Open Source Hardware (OSHW) for scientific research:
The GOSH movement seeks to reduce barriers between diverse creators and users of scientific tools to support the pursuit and growth of knowledge.
GOSH 2016 took place at CERN
last March with an excellent keynote by Javier Serrano

We’re big fans of podcasts about electronics and embedded systems like The Amp Hour, embedded.fm and The Spark Gap podcast. (Please let us know in the comments of other shows we should check out)
In the latest Spark Gap episode, Karl and Corey talk about their trip to Portland for the 2016 Open Hardware Summit:
Our favorite past episodes include the two-episode discussion of PCB design:
We also enjoyed when Karl and Corey were joined by James Lewis of Kemet Electronics to talk about capacitors.
