into hardware

i am so happy that all of you are as into hardware as i am! just a quick note to say i will start putting the workshops into a sort of a schedule later today. there are some workshops that can only be on friday and some that are over two days, so those can’t change days. i will slot the times loosely, but be sure to drop me a note after i post the schedule if there is a conflict for what you wanted to hack on.

for those of you who have the following, i highly recommend you bring them with you:
- a soldering iron
- wire strippers
- helping hands or circuit chip holder
- solder
- small screwdrivers
- other info that is in the individual workshop list for what you might need

there will be wifi (wlan) on site, courtesy of the c-base.

also, i’m looking for a couple of volunteers to help document the workshops with photos and notes and put them up in the hardhack blog. contact me if you want to help out with documentation: fbz att hardhack dott org

call for workshops and demos

hardhack will be all hands-on workshops and/or demos. the due date for workshop/demo submissions is March 31st. submit your workshop/demo to mail att hardhack dott org with the following info:

  • workshop/demo title
  • workshop/demo description
  • workshop/demo time requirement (please estimate as well as you can)
  • your contact info: email, website, cellphone number
  • approximate parts cost for participants
  • required and suggested materials for participants to bring (examples: laptop, usb/serial adaptor, hackable stuff)
  • any questions you may have

this year once workshops are accepted, there will be a sign up list for each workshop to determine which ones make the cut. this should reduce the empty / too-full workshop syndrome and allow for a maximum of hardware hacking!
