Event Details

MAKE is hosting its first MakerCon, May 13th & 14th, 2014 - the week of Maker Faire Bay Area.

 

MakerCon is a broader, more inclusive conference and workshop than Hardware Innovation Workshop more narrow focus on open source H/W. It will offer makers of all stripes–from hobbyists to pros, organizations, municipal resources like libraries, educators, and communities–a chance to find out about new tools and technologies, available resources and services, and topical trends and categories like Internet of Things, Citizen Science, the Quantified Self, and Maker Community Building. It also presents an opportunity to meet and mix with others with similar initiatives as well as individuals who can provide guidance and expertise. 

Themes of MakerCon will include:

Tools of Innovation and Technology Applications
Learn about the latest tools now available to makers. 3D printers, microcontroller platforms, sensors and servos, robotics — makers have never had so many tools with which to innovate. Find out what’s new on the horizon and which vertical markets will benefit first.

Internet of Things
Connecting the physical world to the virtual invokes a lot of interesting ideas and concepts. What are the most innovative products and devices coming out of the maker community?

Quantified Self
As the general population becomes more consumed with keeping tabs on their health, makers have responded with clever devices and products. From wristbands that calculate daily physical activity, to virtual diagnostic tools, to Google Glass.

Citizen Science
Makers with a passion for the environment and natural resource management are getting involved by designing tools to facilitate exploration of the planet, and beyond.

Business of Making
What kind of expertise do makers need to navigate the evolving maker business ecosystem? Should they give up equity to some of the incubator models in exchange for product development, distribution, and marketing advice? What’s the sensible path to scale? Emerging maker pros will find answers to these questions at MakerCon.

Maker Community Building
Connecting makers has become a powerful force in towns and neighborhoods across the globe. Municipalities are recognizing the economic benefits of nurturing their local maker movement. Discover the many varieties of collaboration that are bringing makers together.
