Making 101: Getting started in making with open-source hardware and software

A session at Boise Code Camp 2016

Saturday 19th March, 2016

3:05pm to 4:20pm (MST)

Session Level: 100

In this session, we take a new outlook towards the art and science of Making. We will dive into the modern 'Maker movement' and learn the tools to help us get started. Makers continue to power micro-economies across the world by creating new ideas for technology and business. Boise is a growing hub of new ideas and it is only right to create youth who grow organically into great ideas for the future. This session is set to inspire the youth (young at heart!) to take up active roles in creating an active local maker movement.

To this session, I bring in my years of experience in making with open-source hardware and software. I also bring in my dozen and odd experiences from various hackathons. I bring in my growing experience in trying to build a startup from our hackathon-winning idea!
