Take your project from breadboard to printed circuit board! This 3-day hardware workshop will be led by WyoLum Co-Founder and master designer Anool Mahidharia utilizing KiCAD (http://www.kicad-pcb.org/display/KICAD/KiCad+EDA+Software+Suite).
The workshop runs September 13-15, 2013, Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday.

We recommend participants read the below blog (Part 1 published, Part 2 coming soon) prior to attending the workshop.
How To Design the Perfect PCB – Part 1http://www.michaelhleonard.com/how-to-design-the-perfect-pcb-part1/
Mainly because while we will be covering KiCad specifically at the workshop, it will help if people know the basics (especially those who have never designed a board).
