When I finally made being the best Maker and Educator I possibly can my #1 focus and priority, I was able to go from consumer of other people's ideas to being a creator in a very short time…
Being a creator is something that really, very few people experience. And it's a shame. It's a huge loss for them, for their families and friends, and for the whole world.
Being a creator gave me a path to grow as an individual, and to help others do the same.
The transformation from consumer of other people's ideas into a creator of things and knowledge truly changed my life. It helped me get on a totally new path in my life, to live a fulfilling life that was impossible had this transformation not taken place.
Yes, I am still talking about the power of Making.
Striving to be the best Maker and Educator I can possibly can is my #1 Focus.
But this is simply my "why".
What is yours?
Many of the Speakers in this Summit have helped me in the pursue my goal, and in answering my "why".
If your goal is to be the best Maker you can possibly be, it's safe to say that the Maker Mind Meld Summit deserves your time, effort and complete focus.

Alain Pannetrat, PhD
Alain Pannetrat wanted to create a security system for his home, and automate his garden. So, he designed and build a technology to do that. But he did not stop there. He commercialised this technology so that you do that too. And much more. All based on a simple concept that, sometime, wired solutions are better than wireless. He created noCAN, in which a single cable provides power and data to dozens of Arduino nodes, controlled by a Raspberry Pi. This is a particularly good option for cases that radio communications are not up to the task. In this Masterclass, Alain will show you how to use it.
Marco Schwartz, is an entrepreneur & electrical engineer. He is passionate about the Internet of Things so much that he created a super-easy way to control your Arduinos, ESP8266/ESP32 and Raspberry Pi's from anywhere in the world, with your browser.

Hi, I’m Peter.
I am an online educator and Maker, author of Maker Education Revolution, KiCad Like a Pro, and founder at Tech Explorations.
My mission is to help people learn electronics, programming, printed circuit board design, and lots more.
Most importantly, I want to help as many people as possible to enjoy their technology education adventures.
After a 15 year career as a University Lecturer, I decided to become a Maker, again. Like most of us, as a child, I was curious, and I learned how things worked by experimenting with them (usually, this meant taking them apart and hoping to not loose any screws as I was putting things back together).
Growing up, I became an Engineer, only to loose my childish curiosity in the name of pursuing a career.
I became a child again once I got my first Arduino. With it, I started creating thing, tinkering with components, testing ideas. Even though I was a "career educator", it was only now that I realised how wrong my last 15 years of education had been. I was partly responsible for destroying the creativity of thousands of students, just like mine had been destroyed in the name of being a "proper adult".
At Tech Explorations, my job is to learn and to create. I learn what I am curious about, and I create educational content. This content is the record of my learning.
I don't create this content to teach "students". I create it to help learners learn things that they want to learn.
At the end of the day, we are all learners, and we learn from each other.
I sincerely hope that through the content I create at Tech Explorations, as many people as possible will be inspired to re-kindle their childhood curiosity, learn, and create amazing things.
- Dr Peter Dalmaris
