Details

In the past few years we've seen hackathons and makerspaces spread across the state as creative ways to solve community problems and catalyze collaborations across sectors. Join Burlington NetSquared and leaders of these hackathons and makerspaces for an evening of learning, idea generation and reflection on how we can foster lasting multi-sectoral collaborations--and innovations-- through these kinds of events.

If you've participated in one of these events, come share your experiences! And if you want to get involved in one of the upcoming hacks or new makerspaces, here's your chance to ask questions.

Panelists include:

Bradley Holt, Code for BTV (http://codeforbtv.org/)

Rebecca Roose, HackVT (http://hackvt.com/) and My Web Grocer

Jesse Krembs, Laboratory B (http://www.laboratoryb.org/)

Nate Herzog, StoryHack (http://storyhackvt.com/)

Doug Webster, Champlain Maker Faire (http://www.champlainmakerfaire.com/) and Generator (http://generatorvermont.com/?p=39)
