Maker Faire Hannover opened Saturday July 5th on a warm summer day. It was the second year for Maker Faire Hannover, located at the Congress Centrum, with two exhibition halls, several conference rooms, and outdoor activities and tents. Maker Faire Hannover is organized by Heise, a German technical publisher.
