We had a great turnout and really happy that people from all over LA were able to attend, including groups from Girls in Tech, DIY Girls, SGVHAK, NullSpace, DIY Arduino & Robotics, and our own Hackaday Pasadena Meetup.
If you missed the event you can read @Benchoff's round up on the Hackaday Blog, check out the livestream of the workshop and the lightning talks by @Sophi Kravitz, @elecia, @samy kamkar, and Sagar Jethani.
A big thanks to @Michael Proctor-Smith and Lan Dang for doing the livestream, plus the SGVHAK crew for generally being great and helping out over the weekend.
We were also very pleased that @Deezmaker were able to bring the 3D scanner and printers, and that Gavin from Two Bit Circus brought the interactive Kings game. We had lots of different projects & hacks at the party on Saturday night (we'll get better at collecting info on those), and big thanks to Chris & Arclight from 23b Shop who risked life and limb to bring us the Angry Pickle.
Learn to hack hardware with Hackaday in LA!
Come join us and bring your friends.
Saturday day - PCB Design Workshop
This Zero to Product workshop takes you thru Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design, to some basic manufacturing techniques. If you have little-to-no knowledge of schematic capture, PCB layout, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), soldering, testing, etc; this will be great for you.
Using Eagle you will build a schematic, layout a board, generate CAM files, mill PCBs using an Othermill and more! Also have some fun with dangerous toys like soldering irons and CNCs and such, actually assembling a PCB. Should be interesting.
Saturday night - Talks & Mingle
There will be a party with a few short talks starting at 7 PM. You're strongly encouraged to bring projects to show and discuss. Carry them with you or if you need a table, power, or more space let @Jasmine know.
Sunday daytime - Open Hack Day
Unleash your inner creative, bring your ideas and projects. Come hack on real hardware / software. Planned, unplanned...doesn't matter. This micro-Hack event will provide hardware development boards and other gear like soldering and test equipment, as well as plenty of people who know what they're doing to help you build stuff.
Also - we're looking for mentors with pcb design and electronic hacking experience. If you'd be up for volunteering for a couple of hours or so, get in touch with @Jasmine.
