First Round of Makers Is Up!

Check out our 2012 Makers page to get a taste of what we have in store this year!

We’re Famous!

Workshop #1: SMT Soldering

We’re happy to report that Scott Driscoll of has signed on to do our first workshop.

For all of you electronics enthusiasts out there, you’ll want to sign up to learn how to solder surface mount components with a REGULAR iron. There will be a nominal fee involved ($5) for parts, and the class size will be 15 people. We’ve got him signed on for one workshop, but if we have a good amount of interest, he’s happy to add on a second one.

We’re trying to get people to sign up before the Faire to better organize our efforts, so head over to his blog post to get your name on the list and find out some more information.
