When MAKE set out to host its first business conference to share the insights into the unique culture, enabling technologies, and innovations of the maker movement, location mattered.
PARC, a Xerox Company was the obvious choice. An historic and beautiful setting with a long legacy (over forty years) of innovation through open source, developing products and platforms that have changed the world.
