Dear Summit Sponsor,
We wanted you to hear it from us, the 2019 Summit is being pushed out until Spring. There is a full blog post here but this is the summary.
At the end of the 2018 Summit OSHWA announced that it would be holding the 2019 Open Hardware Summit in Shenzhen, China. Many members of the OSHW community were also very excited for the opportunity to travel to a location that is so central to manufacturing innovation. Unfortunately, in 2017 China implemented a law governing the activities of non-Chinese NGOs operating in China. This law created a number of bureaucratic hurdles for organizations like OSHWA that were interested in holding events in China. OSHWA was unable to find a registered NGO who would host us and take on the amount of paperwork necessary to locate the Summit in Shenzhen.
Since a quarter of our planning period is over, and since we’ve heard from many people the fall is getting crowded with too many events, we have decided to push this year’s Summit to the Spring of 2020 in the US. We are hoping that makes your lives easier!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
