Time zones got you down? Here's a handy time converter!
It may not be every hardware hackers dream, but a fair number of us harbor fantasies of thinking up the Next Big Thing and kissing the day job goodbye forever. It's an understandable dream and a laudable goal, but as they say, a goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline. What's your plan for turning your project into a marketable product? Chances are good you don't have one, and if you ever expect to get to your goal you're going to need one.
Shawn Hymel is an engineer who led several marketing campaigns for Spark Fun and recently shared his thoughts on marketing with attendees of the first-ever KiCon conference in Chicago. He'll be dropping by the Hack Chat to talk about everything you ever wanted to know about marketing your hardware projects but was afraid to ask.
Join us as we discuss:
- Design for manufacture, making sure your widget be built;
- Where to manufacture and how to navigate the process;
- The "marketing funnel"; and
- Will it all be worth it?
