Learn how to etch your own PCBs!
Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California

Chinese New Year got you down? Even though its easier than ever to have your own PCBs made in China, being able to roll your own is a valuable skill to have, from simple-but-large designs, to the annual 2 week hiatus in electronics manufacturing known as "Chinese New Year."
On Saturday, March 16th, Learn how to make your own PCBs using nothing more than some copper-clad board and dangerous household chemicals! Walk away with yet another Arduino clone!
You'll walk in with all the knowledge you need to perform toner-transfer PCB etching using Muriatic Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide. Hone your soldering skills on a bare copper board, and blink an LED with the finest!
All you need for this workshop is yourself! If you want to test your Arduino, bring a laptop with the latest Arduino IDE installed. If you already have an FTDI cable, buy the FTDI-less ticket.
