This month we launched the Maker Pro Newsletter, an e-newsletter that analyzes and explores news and emerging business opportunities for makers. In addition to the newsletter, we’re covering the maker pro space with video profiles and live Google+ hangouts on air that delve into issues relevant to the professional maker.

Our first hangout featured MAKE founder and CEO Dale Dougherty and Greg Mader, a consultant for Open ERP. Open ERP has developed open source resource management software for makers looking to scale up production or to make things more efficiently. If you missed the live broadcast, here’s the video.

Meanwhile, we’d like to hear from you about topics and guests we might include in future hangouts. Please make your suggestions in the comments below and stay tuned for more maker pro coverage from MAKE.

From the editors of MAKE magazine, the Maker Pro Newsletter is about the impact of makers on business and technology. Our coverage includes hardware startups, new products, incubators, innovators, along with technology and market trends. Please send items to us at
