Members of the Open Source Hardware User Group (OSHUG) are once again descending on the UK Maker Belt for the Open Source Hardware Camp (OSHCamp) 2017, which is taking place during the Wuthering Bytes festival in Hebden Bridge in early September.
Organiser Andrew Back has opened a call for participation on an open theme, asking for anyone interested in giving a talk or running a workshop as part of OSHCamp to get in touch. As with previous OSHCamps, the event itself is split across two days: attendees on Saturday the 2nd of September will be treated to topical talks and demonstrations, while Sunday the 3rd is given over to hands-on workshops. As always, all are welcome upon purchase of a ticket - there's no need to be an active OSHUG member to attend.
While there's no formal topic for either day, the event's organisers have suggested a few possible subjects for anyone looking to submit a talk or workshop to cover: any open source hardware projects recently completed or currently in progress, a look at tools in both the hardware and software sense, skills ranging from printed circuit board fabrication to do-it-yourself automated surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly, and technologies such as a look at programming different bus types - or anything else a community of open source hardware enthusiasts might find engaging!
More details for the Open Source Hardware Camp 2017 are available on the official Wuthering Bytes website, along with preliminary schedules for other events which are to take place on the festival's impressive ten-day schedule. Tickets, meanwhile, are available from Eventbrite priced at £10 plus fees (£11.04 total) including lunch.
