Tuesdays are always Open Meeting night at SplatSpace, but next
Tuesday's open meeting is special. The guys and gals from SparkFun
Electronics are on tour, visiting hackerspaces and other maker
hangouts, promoting their Free Day event, filming for a documentary
and giving out free stuff. And, as chance has it, they will be at
Durham’s own hackerspace – SplatSpace – next Tuesday!
SparkFun have been big supporters of the maker / hacker community and
do a lot of business with folks like us, selling electronics parts,
robotics stuff, Arduino kit, etc. This should be a great chance to
come out, interact with some of their employees, possibly get yourself
captured on film (who knows, maybe they’ll put you in the
documentary), and generally hang out with cool people at the coolest
Word has it the SparkFun crew will come bearing gift cards, t-shirts,
stickers, logo patches, etc. They’ve been invited to join us for our
open meeting which starts at 7:00pm, but they may be around earlier.
Open Meetings on Tuesdays include member show & tell, project updates,
and calls for collaborative hacking from 7pm-8pm. By 8:00pm, the
meeting will break and everyone is free to mingle, work on projects,
and get to know fellow hackers.
