Next Meetup

Autodesk & Kickstarter
Hey Hardwarians! This time around we're sponsored by our friends at Autodesk’s Technology Center located at Pier 9 on the Embarcadero! Hosting a meetup at Autodesk's Pier 9 workshop has been a dream of our for years and it's finally happening! (This will also be the last event hosted by super MC Clarissa Redwine, so make sure you come out to bid her a fond farewell!) The Autodesk Technology Center in San Francisco is a hub for the exploration into the future of manufacturing. Focused on the concept of configurable microfactories, this technology center hosts a residency program bringing together forward-thinking startups, academic researchers, and thought leaders from industry to create a shared vision for the future of making. As a part of the global Autodesk Technology Center network, this space supports its residents with a range of advanced manufacturing equipment, robotics, and general shop facilities and workspaces to explore facilitate the research and development that are pushing the boundaries of traditional manufacturing. Demos & Announcements Jump up and demo if you've got a prototype to share with your fellow Hardwarians or if you just want to talk about what you're working on. Format: 2 minutes maximum (hard stop), no projector, no slides - just you, your prototype, and a microphone! Call for Volunteers We need volunteers for our events who can help at the door, with clean-up, and more. Volunteering guarantees you admission to the meetup and we have a limited number of slots. Please let us know (by messaging Robert) if you'd like to help out!

    What we're about

    We all know the Bay Area has tons of software meetups, but where's the hardware love? We're bringing together anyone who interested in building a business in the world of physical products: from company boards to organic soap. The purpose of the group is to start to build the hardware startup community by: bringing people together, bringing in experts in the fields of hardware & form entrepreneurs who've done it before, and also to build a better picture of the hardware scene so we can all find the resources we need to make this happen.
