We’re very excited to host the Official SXSW Hardware Startup Meetup at SXSW Create!
Note: SXSW Create is open to the public, No Badge Required!
There are dozens of great hardware talks and panels on the SXSW agenda meaning a lot of folks interested in hardware will be in Austin, including members and organizers of Hardware Startup groups from around the world.
Lets get together with these designers, hackers, makers and engineers to make new connections and learn about what’s going on in the greater Hardware Startup community.
12:30 = Welcome & Intro to HW Startup meetups
12:40 – 1 = HW startup meetup organizers give updates on their groups, members
Each week on the Adafruit blog we post up about amazing companies, people and articles about being a MAKER and a business. Over the years we’ve shared how we run Adafruit, published code from our shopping cart system and given presentations on running an open-source hardware company. Every Monday we’re going to try to collect some of these resources and tag them #makerbusinessmonday & #makerbusiness. They’re in our popular Maker Business category as well, enjoy!
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.
