Open hardware in 2014 on Opensource.com. Adafruit mention in the education section, thank you!!!!
Open hardware is the physical foundation of the open movement. It is through understanding, designing, manufacturing, commercializing, and adopting open hardware, that we built the basis for a healthy and self-reliant community of open. And the year of 2014 had plenty of activities in the open hardware front.
Opensource.com published a set of new resources on open hardware, including anaccessible definition. In March, we celebrated open hardware with a full week of articles on various topics. The editorial staff had fun at their open hardware day with 3D printers, Arduinos, and quadcopters. And open hardware continued in the news throughout year in many different areas.
Here are some of the highlights…
Limor Fried opened the year by sharing the continued and persistent activity of Adafruit to educate a new generation of makers and hackers. She brought attention to larger events such as the Maker Faire, the Open Source Hardware Summit, and these regular sessions at Adafruit: Ask an Engineer and Show and Tell.
