Last October 8th we had the chance to share with our community some of the projects and advances made by our community during the 2nd Open Source Hardware Encounter, held in San Salvador, El Salvador. Our first event was organized by our promoter team in 2013, which gave way to the development of the community and its affiliation as an OSHWA Branch since February 2016. Since its beginning, the community has grown and participates mostly through local events organized in El Salvador, and social media. The event took place at the Francisco Gavidia University in San Salvador and brought local designers and enthusiasts. We also had the great pleasure of inviting the members of Southmade, the Open Hardware Community in Ecuador as part of the exchange that we have generated as the first international branches of the Open Hardware Association in the region.
