Announcement: David from IFTTT is away this month. Let's meetup at the TechShop at the 2nd Floor Conference Room.

Theme: Documentation Day

The Open Source Hardware Association has announced October ( as Open Source Hardware Month! Following our open source discussion with Brandon Mensing in July, let's take a closer look together at how open source hardware works!

We'll explore questions together including:

What is the Open Source Hardware Association (
What is the newly launched Open Source Hardware Certification Program (
What are the guidelines ( for documenting open source hardware?
How can we make documentation easier?

A note about visiting the TechShop:

If you are not a member, when entering the TechShop please sign the waiver of liability form at the front desk upon arrival. This is a requirement for entry. Also please do not access other areas of the shop for your safety. There's a lot of potentially dangerous equipment setup around the shop that you have to be trained to use.


Our twice-a-month hack night is focused on going in-depth into the "Tech" of Urban AgTech with other UAT members. We hack/build and learn together every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.

If you have any questions, please email us at hello [at], contact the organizers via meetup, or drop by on Tuesday evening.
