Join MAKE Magazine in New York for a One-Day Workshop for Maker Pros
MAKE magazine is bringing its popular Hardware Innovation Workshop to New York for a one-day event at the New York Hall of Science. Don’t miss this unprecedented opportunity to network with fellow maker pros as you learn tips and hints, best practices and avenues to successfully navigate the transition to maker pro.
A leader of the maker movement, MAKE has been integral in helping DIY hobbyists avail themselves of the tools and technologies—such as 3D printers, CNC mills, and microcontrollers—to design and engineer innovative products and devices. Increasingly, these projects provide real solutions that enhance consumers’ lifestyles. As a result, many of these maker pros find themselves running startup companies with little experience or knowledge of the business ecosystem. Facing the challenges of every business, they seek out experts and others who have been there, to advise them on manufacturing, distribution, pricing, funding, customer acquisition and marketing,
With the launch of its Hardware Innovation Workshop, MAKE has provided a forum for conversation to help makers connect with makers, and makers connect with pros in an intimate, collaborative environment.
This one-day event at NYSCI will take the best of the content, ideas, views and visions and consolidate it into the ultimate, effective and efficient “toolbox for maker pros.”
MAKE is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects. MAKE unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. MAKE celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. MAKE is published quarterly by Maker Media, Inc., that also produces the wildly popular Make: Online (www.makezine.com), the Maker Shed online store for DIY kits, books, and more (www.makershed.com), and the world's biggest DIY festival, Maker Faire (www.makerfaire.com).
"The Maker movement has brought the pre-1970s world of basement workshops and amateur tinkering into the digital age." -- The New York Times
