Slack Community for Hardware Startups

hwstartup

Via Reddit:

Hey all,

I started a Slack community for anything hardware. The main purpose of it is to connect like-minded entrepreneurs and early stage startups with the right people to accelerate their time to market or anyone interested in hardware.

We currently have almost 400 members, and include some small PCB fabrication shops from the US as well as larger end-to-end companies that will help you DFM, source, and manufacture from China. We also have a few people launching kickstarter campaigns and using the network to reach a broader audience.

You can join here: http://hwstartup.herokuapp.com/

If you don’t know what Slack is, it’s pretty much a cloud-based successor to IRC (you don’t have to install anything for full functionality), where you can have previews in your links, and chat history is saved so you can look at the resources posted from before. Helps with organizing and connecting with people.


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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord
