Maker Summer Camp is going down in just a few weeks. The Bay Area Maker Faire is the biggest gathering of people who build stuff all year. As always, we're going to be hosting a pre-game filled with interesting talks, interesting people, and interesting devices. This month, we'll be enjoying talks from an extravaganza of hackers and makers from around the world (that just happen to be in town).
First up is Mic Black (@micblackau). Mic is a Mic is an accomplished maker and prolific creative technologist. He is a strong advocate and contributor to the growth of the maker movement in Australia supported by connections to the worldwide maker community to develop a commercially sustainable creative technology innovation ecosystem. For his talk, he'll be speaking about getting outrageous projects funded, and all about wild PR stunts and flashbuilds. He'll also be speaking about his craziest projects and funniest stories.
Also on deck is Christina Cyr (@CyrChristina), who holds degrees in biochemistry, physics, and a master's in engineering. Her work experience includes nuclear submarines, software engineering, and biochemical research. Of note, she'll be speaking about dToor https://dtoor.com/, makers of non-rectangular phones for non-rectangular people. Her talk will discuss modems and cellular modules, shipping products with cell modules, and the hardware development of the Cyrcle Phone www.cyrclephone.com
After the talks, there will be demos, community announcements, and socializing. If you'd like to give a 2 minute demo/ community announcement, please see the organizers when you arrive to get set up.
A community announcement includes looking for a project partner, a job, offering a project/ job, the announcement of your startup launch, your Crowdfunding pitch, etc.
We're looking forward to seeing you Thursday, May 16, at 6:30pm!
