Open Hardware Summit accepting calls for proposals, and Ada Lovelace fellows!
The OSH Summit will be held April 22, 2022 (Possibly at NYC/NYU, Possibly remote, Possibly hybrid!)
The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) aims to foster technological knowledge and encourage research that is accessible, collaborative and respects user freedom.
Every year, OSHWA hosts the Open Hardware Summit, which hosts talks that cover a wide range of subjects from electronics, mechanics to related fields such as digital fabrication, fashion technology, self-quantification devices, and IP law. As a microcosm of the Open Source Hardware community, the Summit provides an annual friendly forum for the community.
Call For Proposals Deadline: December 17th 2021
Any public, open, or citizen led, artwork, creative practice, research creation, rogue research, or academic and industry project is welcome that covers Open Hardware from any perspective. If you don’t see yourself directly in this call for proposals, please still consider submitting. Feel free to reach out to Lee Wilkins or Claire Cassidy, the dedicated talks chair. OSH does not accept marketing pitches.
We are also excited to offer the Ada Lovelace fellowship which provides support and mentorship to marginalized people in open hardware. Questions relating to this can be directed to Sid Drmay, the fellowship chair.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
