Open Hardware Summit and World Maker Faire 2012

OHS happens two days before World Maker Faire in New York City (with overlapping audiences).

About the Open Hardware Summit The Open Hardware Summit is the annual conference organized by the Open Source Hardware Association and the world’s first comprehensive conference on open hardware, a venue to discuss and draw attention to the rapidly growing open source hardware movement. Speakers include world renowned leaders from industry, academia, and the DIY community. Talks cover a wide range of subjects from electronics and mechanics to related fields such as digital fabrication, fashion technology, self-quantification devices, and DIY bio. Discussions and panels focus on, but are not limited to, education, manufacturing, design, business, and law.

About Maker Faire The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, Calif., in 2006. Maker Faire Bay Area held its seventh annual Bay Area event in May 2012 with over 110,000 people in attendance. As Maker Faire has grown in popularity and relevance, additional Faires were launched in 2010 in Detroit and New York City. Community-driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faire events inspired by Maker Faire are now being produced around the United States and the world. Maker Faire is supported by MAKE magazine and O'Reilly Media, the information source for leading-edge computer technologies. For more information about Maker Faire, please visit makerfaire.com.
