Dale Dougerthy, co-founder of O’Reilly Media and publisher of MAKE, announced on O’Reilly Radar the first Hardware Innovation Workshop, an event organized by Make Magazine to discuss the incredibly fast-growing and changing maker movement. This Hardware Innovation Workshop will be the inaugural business event of MAKE. Good to see that 3D printing and Open Source Hardware are presented as the centerpieces of the maker movement.
The 2-days event will gather on stage the crème de la crème of open hardware startups and digital fab activists: Nathan Seidle of SparkFun Electronics, Bre Pettis of Makerbot, Massimo Banzi of Arduino, Carl Bass of Autodesk, Jay Rogers of Local Motors, Ayah Bdeir of Little Bits, Mark Hatch of Techshop, Allan Chochinov of Core77 and Bunnie Huang of Chumby.
Keynotes and sessions will be hold on Wednesday, May 16th 2012 with a first taste and introduction on Tuesday, May 15th. The event will happen at PARC in Palo Alto.
Registrations for the Hardware Innovation Workshop + Maker Faire are open here. Only 300 tickets are available.
