Summer of Hacks #4: Hardware

This is a day of hacking on hardware. We'll have some kits, complete with Espruino boards and components, to play with and you're welcome to bring any additional hardware or things you'd like to hack.

Who is this event for?

Anyone interested in learning a bit about hardware. There are no minimum entry requirements, other than an inquisitive mind. If you've never touched a breadboard before, that's fine – we have some starter kits and plenty of helpful people to guide you. If you're a bit more experienced that's great too, as you'll get to play with some new kit or hack on a project with like-minded people.


Please make sure you read and agree to our Code of Conduct before attending.


We'll be providing pastries from a local patisserie, and a burrito lunch. You'll get to build your own burrito/box. We'll also have a selection of fruits and snacks, teas and coffees.

If you have any concerns about dietary requirements (or any questions whatsoever) get in touch.

What isn't this event?

This isn't a competition, race or hackathon. There will be no prizes, other than basking in your own glory as you learn new things, meet new people, and have a good time.


Thank you to our sponsors that have made it possible to run this event and build our community.
