Cairo Hackerspace

3-Day-Maker-Space

I’m in Cairo. It’s quite an exciting time to be here!

Hopes are very high here after their “Freedom Revolution”, even with the military still in power.

I mainly came here to be part of Maker Faire Africa (which was this past weekend), and was funded by a Kickstarter campaign to make it all happen. Together with the brand new Cairo Hackerspace, we set up a 3-Day hackerspace at the Faire, which was way wondeful!

In case anyone is interested in more info, I created 2 blog posts today on the Noisebridge blog:

One was about my take on the night of violence here in Cairo tonight:

The other is about Maker Faire Africa, the new Cairo Hackerspace, and the Hackerspace Meetups me and Bilal are helping to organize:

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
