Hackaday Meet Up

Friday, March 13
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Long Center
West Pincer Terrace
701 W Riverside Dr


The Hackaday Meet Up brings together hardware enthusiasts to discuss how small and medium scale builds taken on by large numbers of people can result in global benefits. The 2015 Hackaday Prize is based on this concept. We're at a fascinating point in human history where inexpensive access to knowledge, materials, tools, and processes allow individuals and small teams to affect real change.

There is a wide-ranging swath of problems that need solving. Things like generating clean energy, sourcing clean water, providing health care, and lowering barriers to education. We'll get the conversation started by showing off hardware built by Hackaday Community members which solves these types of problems. Rather than hoping huge organizations find the answers, we need to inspire each other and build off of good ideas to generate our own storm of solutions.
