The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!

Maker Pro News: Live and Online

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.
