From Makers Local 256
An attempt to get multiple hackerspaces in the same place at the same time with the goal of organizing a hackerspaces con for the next year.
Where: Huntsville, AL
- A type of panel discussion where members of various hackerspaces get up before the room and present a problem with their space and let the room try and solve it. The idea being that surely there's another space that's already dealt with said problem and can offer advice.
