A place for Tindie sellers and the community
to meet and stretch their legs
We're doing it again! This week's #Hack Chat is Making Electronics for Education this Friday July 21.
Honored to have AnnMarie Thomas, creator of Squishy Circuits and director of the Playful Learning Lab, as our guest. This will be a great one for @Tindie Sellers who are creating hardware or kits for education or are thinking about it.
Discuss purple PCBs and more with Dan Sheadel & Drew Fustini on June the 23rd.
This Hack Chat is part of a collaboration between Hackaday & Tindie to bring content and events that encourage engineers and inventors to prototype and bring their ideas to market.
Tindie sellers can also get a $25 off code for OSH Park. Get in touch with email@example.com with a link to your store.
It’s Maker Faire this weekend and Tindie is excited to be there with Hackaday and the Supplyframe team.
Head over to Tindie’s booth (RW22) in the ‘Maker to Market’ Pavillion in Zone 7 to say ‘Hi’ to me ( @Jasmine) @Shulie, @Jordan, @Rich, and Gerrit Coetzee. You may even be able to catch @Mike Szczys and @Chris Gammell.

Tuesday May 2nd @ 1pm PT. Join this project to take part.
Some sellers test their ideas on Tindie and build up to doing a crowd funding campaign, or complete a campaign and then come over to Tindie to sell excess inventory or second runs. Either way, there's a lot of great options for bringing your project to market.
We've got @Zach Dunham joining us for May's TindieChat. He's the Design & Technology Outreach Lead at Kickstarter and has a background in hardware and audio arts. He'd love to hear your experiences and can answer any questions that you might have about launching a campaign.
Also, @Jasmine Brackett from Tindie will be the host and can also provide advice for anyone wondering what to do after their campaigns and selling on TIndie.
Maybe you've had an incredibly successful campaign and have advice for others? We'd love to hear your tips in this TIndieChat!
You can post questions in advance on this doc. They can be for Zach, the Tindie Team, or the community in general.
Tindie seller @Spencer is starting a monthly meetup in Nottingham. We're sure it will be a fantastic opportunity for hardware entrepreneurs and maker types in the area to share ideas over a beer or two.
What: Nottingham Hardware Meetup
Where: Malt Cross, 16 Saint James's Street, Nottingham
When: Tue, March 14, 2017. 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM GMT
Description from the eventbrite page:
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then why not come along to Nottinghams first Monthly Hardware Meetup on 14th March at the Malt Cross! Bring along your favorite project/hack/kit, some interesting stories that non-hardware types find boring, and a few quid for some of the awesome real ales that the Malt Cross has to offer.
We've got an upstairs section of this wonderful Victorian Music Hall reserved from 7:30pm, so grab yourself a pint and wander up. You might also want to check out the fantastic menu too.
The event is completely free to attend (excluding beer or food!), but I've chosen to list it on Eventbrite so that I've got an idea of how many people to expect, and also putting all this info in a 140 character tweet is just not going to work out well!
SCaLE is on from 2-5th March in Pasadena, CA. We'll be in the Expo Hall Friday, Saturday, Sunday. More details here: https://hackaday.io/event/20013-hackaday-and-tindie-at-scale-15x
Next #TindieChat is about Certifications - FCC, OSH, CE, and more.
If you've had experience or are an expert, let us know!
