HDDG 30: Pre-Maker Faire Roundup!


Enjoy delicious food (that is unlikely to be pizza) and beverages while listening to fascinating technical talks by these crazy and creative engineers.

Tanya Fish - Explaining Electronics to the Unitiated
Roy Jui Liang Hung - Mastering Animal Mechanics with the 3D Printer
Jason Kridner - Simplifying Hardware Design with System-in-Package Tech

Tanya Fish (@tanurai) has been working at Pimoroni for the past couple of years, and is on a mission to explain how all their boards work to a wider audience. Hear her discuss the issues of explaining the "invisible magic" to complete beginners at electronics, and how the school system in the UK ill-prepares students for anything beyond building a simple circuit.

Roy is founder of Perkūnas Studio and an artist who’s passionate on tinkering. He first learned about 3Dprint in 2011, teaching himself how to master the machine. He is the most renowned 3DP expert in Taiwan. Roy will be talking about the process he used to make his incredible 3D sculptures, which he will be showing off at Maker Faire this weekend. He will even bring one of them to HDDG!

Jason Kridner is the co-founder and board member of the BeagleBoard.org foundation, and spends a lot of time defining strategy for growing open platform ecosystems. Jason will be talking about simplifying hardware design with system-in-package technology.

After the talks, there will be demos, community announcements, and socializing. If you'd like to give a 2 minute demo/ community announcement, please see the organizers when you arrive to get set up.

A community announcement includes looking for a project partner, a job, offering a project/ job, the announcement of your startup launch, your Crowdfunding pitch, etc.

We're looking forward to seeing you Thursday, May 17th, at 6:30p!
