Open Source Hardware (Part I)

An introduction to Open Source Hardware

Paul Downey

An introduction to Open Source Hardware illustrated using a series of existing Open Source Hardware projects, from small physical projects, alarm clocks, 3D-printers, Arduinos through to cars and laptops. What are the motivations for starting a project? What is the best way to collaborate, accept contributions? How can you license your works for others to use?

Hard curves, soft electronics - code, tech & textiles.

Rain Ashford

In 2008 I was given an Arduino and made some LEDs blink - two years on what have I made and how?

London Hackspace

Russ Garrett

London Hackspace is one of a growing number of physical spaces for geeks across the UK and the world. We'll talk about the history of hackerspaces, how a group of cash-strapped geeks managed to rent a place in one of the most expensive cities in the world, and what happens when the Internet spills out into real life.
