On October 2 in Saint Petersburg we will hold a mini-conference on open source hardware — Russian Open-Source Hardware 10.10.
All of us know about open source software, but only few heard about open source hardware. And there are even less people who dealt with it. On the conference you will not be only able to get an idea about what the open source hardware is, but also be able to communicate with the developers of open source projects, get familar yourself with what things happen in this field in Russia and in the World. We plan the presentations to be made by developers from Russia as well as from the other countries (remotely).
For example I will be presenting our project GPFix — GPS monitoring system of remote objects there.
You can visit conference at no charge, but only standing places are left available. However, we will try to support an online video streaming with an ability to ask a question remotely. Thus it is possible to participate right from your home. Information about online streaming will be published on the conference web site and on the open source hardware mailing list. Unfortunately we will not be able to provide a realtime translation, but we may find time later to either audio translate or create subtitles of the recorded videos.
