It really is a no-brainer!

Now it’s Day 3, and we have three amazing speakers lined up for you today…

Today’s theme is “The How of Making“.

Here’s a list of presenters and their topics:

Jon Evans – Wondering how to contribute to an open source project?

Jon Evans, a member of the KiCad lead developer team and electrical engineer, will show you how open-source projects work, how you can become a contributor to one, and list best practices for starting your own open source project.

John Teel – So you want to take your prototype to market?

John Teel is an electronics design engineer, serial entrepreneur, blogger, and the founder of Predictable Designs.

As a former senior design engineer at Texas Instruments, he designed dozens of successful microchips that are now found in all kinds of popular electronic devices including some from Apple and Intel.

He knows a thing or two about taking a design to market.

In his Masterclass, John will take you through the steps that every successful electronic product must go through. Don’t start your hardware startup before you watch this Masterclass!

Simon Gao – What happens to your Gerber files once you submit them to an online PCB manufacturer? Find out.

Simon Gao is a Customer Experience Manager with PCBWay, where they manufacture thousands of PCBs each week.

He will show you each of the 14 distinct steps needed to make your boards.

Knowing how PCBs are actually made in the factory will give you a deeper insight into the process which you can use to design PCBs that are easier, cheaper, and better to manufacture.

Remember to watch the videos before they expire. They are only available for 24 hours since publication before they go in the Maker Mind Meld Vault.
