EVENT:

MAKE Hardware Innovation Workshop

Make, a division of O'Reilly Media

15 May 2012 - 16 May 2012
1 1/2 day conference
hosted at PARC, a Xerox company

 

description

As open source software did for the rapid proliferation and growth of the Web economy, open source hardware has been the key accelerator inspiring innovations in design, products and devices from makers at the forefront of the maker movement. Already, critical areas dependent on new technology—such as medical devices and scientific instrumentation—are deploying some of this early innovation. What's more, opportunities are rife for the integration of software and hardware devices to optimize processes and products.

Hosted by Dale Dougherty, founder and publisher of MAKE, the first magazine devoted to celebrating the community of individuals who create, build, design, tinker, hack and invent. Dale is also co-founder of O'Reilly Media.
