Another great Seattle Mini Maker Faire is in the books and I had an amazing time volunteering both Friday and Saturday. The rain on Sunday seemed to kill the crowds a bit but it was still a great day.
The maker movement has been growing in Seattle specifically it was great to see a ton of elementary and middle school aged kids in attendance. This year’s event continued a strong presence of exhibits specifically tailor for the young maker community.
A couple of my personal highlights from last week’s Seattle Mini Maker Faire….
- Home brew computer: https://hackaday.io/project/4237-mental-1-a-brainfuck-cpu
- Mathematically knit scarfs: https://knityak.com/
It’s events like this that I wish there were more regular events and/or meet-ups in the Seattle area. I go to almost any tech related event I can but most of them are very networking centric and not so much idea sharing. I had some time to talk to Jen Fox and I think we both concluded that more local maker meet-ups need to happen.
Sorry for the lack of pictures I took a bunch of pics Sunday however they just came out horrible.
