We’re excited to announce that Maker Faire, our partner in crime and catalyst to the Open Hardware Summit, will be including one (1) complimentary ticket to Maker Faire in the Open Hardware Summit goodie bag! As many people are familiar with Maker Faire in this crowd, we think you’ll be excited too.
If you haven’t been to Maker Faire, it’s a very a prominent and important part of the DIY movement and has extremely strong overlap with open source hardware. The New York Maker Faire is Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 17th and 18th), just 2 days after the Summit. You can check out other Maker Faires locations on the Maker Faire website: makerfaire.com
We hope you’ll take advantage of the complimentary ticket and further support the DIY / Maker movement. The fabulous people on the Maker Faire crew have given the Summit a large amount of support from getting us hotel room blocks, and allowing us to take over NYSCI on one of their days, to advice about speakers and twitter. We are honored to be part of this community, standing on the shoulders of giants. We couldn’t do it without you!
