The Open Source Hardware Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is excited to announce the 2017 Open Hardware Summit taking place October 5th, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. This is the annual gathering of the OSHWA organization and open hardware community. Through the Open Hardware Summit, we aim to create an inclusive welcoming environment to empower people in all stages of discovering open source technology.
The Open Hardware Summit is where anyone and everyone can participate and collaborate in the open source community!
At this time we are opening the call for companies or individuals interested in sponsoring this year’s summit. More information can be found here.
For the fifth year running, we are ecstatic to offer up TEN (10) Open Hardware Fellowships to members of the community. This includes travel assistance and entrance to the 2017 open Hardware Summit!
- Sharing information on individual and corporate memberships with friends and colleagues
- Using our guidelines to certify projects or products as a form of standardized open hardware
- Participating on social media outlets (like Twitter and Facebook) to keep the conversation going and spread news of the summit
- Last, but far from least, donating to our 501(c)3 (be sure to remember that some companies match gift amounts their employees make to a non-profit! This doubles the distance that gifts will go!!)
