MAKERCON IS A BROADER, MORE INCLUSIVE CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOP THAN HARDWARE INNOVATION WORKSHOP’S MORE NARROW FOCUS ON OPEN SOURCE H/W

It will offer makers of all stripes—from hobbyists to pros, organizations, municipal resources like libraries, educators, and communities—a chance to find out about new tools and technologies, available resources and services, and topical trends and categories like Internet of Things, Citizen Science, the Quantified Self, and Maker Community Building. It also presents an opportunity to meet and mix with other makers with similar initiatives as well as individuals who can provide guidance and expertise. Workshops will include “How to Make a Makerspace,” “Digital Manufacturing for Scale”, and a “Business of Making” track similar to Hardware Innovation Workshop.
