Quick question for you. Are you free Sunday, April 15th? Hackaday and Tindie are going to be in London this weekend, coming back from the Dublin Unconference. We’re hosting a free Bring-a-Hack event for the London community at the Artillery Arms, Bunhill Row, in Islington!
London Meetup (Sunday, April 15th)
Grab a drink and hang out with members of the community Sunday at London’s Artillery Arms. Tindie’s Jasmine Brackett and Hackaday’s Jenny List will also be in attendance. Please register for a free ticket to tell us you’re coming (that page has all of the details).
Don’t worry, this isn’t a formal get-together, so you won’t need to prepare a presentation or anything. Just bring a small and portable project that you want to show off to the community. Electrical, mechanical, 3D-printed, textiles, or anything else you’re working on is welcome! If you have any Hackaday prize projects from this year or a past year, we want to see those too.
If you can’t make it this weekend, don’t sweat it. We have two more events coming up in Nottingham and Cambridge as well.
Nottingham Meetup (Wednesday, April 18th)
Tindie seller ZxSpectROM is organizing another meetup in the Midlands on April 18th at the Canalhouse. Just like the London meetup, this is an informal gathering where makers can bring their latest portable creations to share with the community.
Check out the listing to register beforehand. Jasmine from Tindie and Jenny from Hackaday will be here, along with Nottingham Hardware Meetup’s Spencer Owen.
Cambridge Meetup (Thursday, April 19th)
A third meetup is happening in Cambridge on Thursday, April 19th at The Cambridge Blue. Sign up for free and bring along any projects you’re working on for this Bring-a-Hack meetup. All projects are welcome. We especially love a change to see projects from Hackaday.io and Tindie.com in person!
Pi Wars (April 21-22nd)
Later this month, Tindie is proud to be sponsoring the Pi Wars robotics competition. Jasmine Brackett from Tindie will be in attendance. If you haven’t heard of this two-day challenge, it is a competition in which Raspberry Pi-controller robots are created by teams and tested in non-destructive gauntlets.
Points, prizes, and medals are awarded at the end of the day in a ceremony. The event can support up to 76 teams at the competition in Cambridge, UK. Teams are welcome from all around the world to test their mettle in this robotic crucible.
Tindie will be there with Tindie Badges as well. Winners can also expect Tindie credit as a reward for their efforts.
Stay tuned for more events towards the end of April! Makerfaire and a meetup in Newcastle will be held at the end of the month.
