MakerCon New York 2015
The Impact of Makers and Making on:
The Economy and Emerging Markets
MakerCon is a conference by and for makers. The maker movement is providing new insights into local and global manufacturing, design, workforce development, education and even creative culture. MakerCon provides valuable, practical insights into the impact of makers and making on education, the economy and emerging markets.
What is MakerCon about?
MakerCon connects individuals at the forefront of the maker movement, focusing on the new technologies, services ecosystem, manufacturing models, and funding trends that provide new ways of making things and getting them to market.
A new one-day format, MakerCon includes epic keynotes, informal fireside chats, provocative panels and thematic meetups featuring experts in digital manufacturing, technology and tool innovators, and the new breed of industrial designers. These leaders come together to exchange their views and visions about the impact of the maker movement, and its sweeping measure beyond only new business and new technologies.
After a day of conference sessions, please join us for an evening at our MakerCon Innovation Showcase, featuring over 25 sponsors and Maker companies showcasing their latest products and technologies. A dinner reception will be part of the Evening of Innovation (from 6pm – 9pm).
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.
