OH/DC: Open Source Hardware Comes to the Nation's Capital
Friday, April 20, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Join Public Knowledge as we introduce the wonks of DC to the geeks of Open Source Hardware (OSHW)!
We will have panels to introduce you to the ideas behind OSHW, and talk with some of the people who use OSHW to power their businesses.
Later in the day, we will have a hands-on demonstration area so you can use some of the projects yourself.
Stay tuned for a full agenda, but here's a sneak peak: Squishy Circuits, Open Source Hardware Association, littleBits, Arduino, SparkFun Electronics.
