This winter’s open source/DIY convention has added two new speakers to their list: Jasper Nance will demonstrate her high speed photography experiments as well as her DIY Scanning Electron Microscope project. bionerd23 will talk about detecting radiation.
What are the frontiers of DIY technology? The first Exceptionally Hard & Soft Meeting (EHSM) will feature presentations of the brightest DIY achievements. But we do not want to stop at DIY. In fact, we should not, because teamwork is the only way to get the big things done.
The open source ethos is about keeping the freedom and openness of DIY when many people are involved. At a time when thousands of developers from hundreds of companies contribute to Linux and the world’s largest physics laboratories share openly licensed hardware designs on OHWR, we will explore the cutting-edge open source hardware and software practices.
This premiere of the EHSM will be held in Berlin on December 28-30 2012. Everyone is welcome to attend it. Curiosity is enough to qualify, and we have kept the minimal entrance fee affordable. Please order your ticket as soon as possible, to help us make this event happen.
It’s important that you help support these talks, so if you plan on attending, reserve your ticket now! Early registration ($65) ends July 15th, and the ticket prices will go up to $110 after that.
