The Open Hardware Summit is a venue to discuss and draw attention to the rapidly growing open source hardware movement. Speakers at the Summit include world renowned leaders from industry, academia and the DIY community. The summit focuses on hardware as a system through a series of discussions and panels on BUSINESS, LAW, MANUFACTURING, SCALING, DESIGN and EDUCATION. The one-day Summit seeks to empower companies, large and small, to produce electronic objects in an open source fashion.
Our speaker lineup includes a Keynote from the Arduino Team; Myriam Ayass, the lawyer who wrote an Open Hardware License at CERN from the OSHW definition; talks from sucessful open source hardware business owners; artists; and hardware hackers.
We also are announcing an Open Hardwre Scholarship this year! Get $2,000 USD to begin your open source hardware project. Follow the instructions on the Scholarship page, but act fast - Entries are due on Sept. 14th.
