Make:SF - the Bay Makers February Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

This Sunday February 10th at 2pm is the third Make:SF event, typically they will fall on the first Sunday of the the month, but this particular event was pushed back a week. (Please pardon any confusion.) Future events will split in to two groups, social meetings and more hands on workshops. We had about 17 people at the second event, it was a great success! We already have more "yes" RSVP's for 2/10. Starting with the 2/10 meeting I'd like to encourage people to sign up for a 20 minute time slot to present your work or ideas. 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. (See the comments section of this post on the Blog for time slots.) I know TechShop is a bit far for some folks, but it's a pretty awesome resource. Starting Feb 21st we'll be having a casual Thursday night social event in downtown San Francisco for those who can't make the trip. (Stay tuned.) We have the full support of Make Magazine who has agreed to supply us with some tech goodies, we still have some back issues to give away, and presenters will receive a T-Shirt (while supplies last). Again we'll have some stuff to snack on as well. Hope to see you there! More details and a recap of previous meetings will be available on as the date draws nearer... -Andrew PS: Here are some Maker Faire dates and times to keep in mind... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - February 17, 2008 - Maker Faire Tryouts (designed for new Makers and Makers that have projects that they would like to show us before the event) Exploratorium - noon - 4:00pm San Francisco Please email [masked] to reserve a space March 12, 2008 - Deadline for applications Please note that space is limited so be sure to get your applications in by this date.

    Only thing missing was projector for presentations, but this wasn't a killer problem.

    Lots of interesting people and cool projects. Very diverse - everything from blacksmithing to microcontrollers.
