Adafruit 2257
We are pleased to announce a new series of LIVE Google+ Hangouts on Air! HARDWARE HANGOUT with ADAFRUIT 11/12 at 7pm ET – our first special guest is Marc Barros! These chats are with entrepreneur, hardware engineer and founder Ladyada from Adafruit along with members of her team and a guest talking about Maker Businesses, specifically hardware businesses! Tune in, ask questions and learn from experts in the hardware industry.

Here is the Google+ event, we’ll see you LIVE on 11/12 at 7pm ET!

Marc has a hardware workshop coming up – Hardware Workshop – Helping hardware founders build better companies – November 22nd-23rd – Astro Studios, San Francisco. The workshop is a two day event for founders of hardware startups to help you learn how to get from an idea to market fit. The curriculum is broken up into a series of 60 minute sessions, taught by experienced hardware startup operators. This workshop goes beyond “how to crowdfund an MVP” to provide lessons applicable in building a successful hardware startup. We hope you leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of what it takes to turn your idea into a successful company.

Marc also wrote this articles for makers (or anyone) looking to get in to hardware – How To Build A Hardware Startup – A complete guide from idea to market fit by Marc Barros. All on the Adafruit Learning System.
