Maker Mind Meld Summit: Shout-out to PCBWay 

 December 24, 2019

By  Peter

The 1st Maker Mind Meld Summit concluded last week.

I hope that it gave you practical tools and knowledge that you can use in your next project.

I also hope that it gave you a new perspective that will inspire you to see your future projects as opportunities to create magic, not just gobble together a few components.

The magic I am talking about is the kind that helps people push their own limits. It the kind that will help you create things that you did not think were possible (for you) to create, and in the process expand yourself (or as Jorge de Sousa Pires would say: “elevate yourself”).

In this once-off message, I want to acknowledge the support of PCBWay and of Simon Gao.

PCBWay was our Platinum sponsor, and generously contributed towards making the Summit a success.

Our Sponsors, and specifically PCBWay and Altair, were instrumental in making the Summit available as a free online event so that so many people could benefit from.

In this email, I want to highlight PCBWay services, and I encourage you to consider them for your next PCB (also look for a their store credit offer).
