Do you like Open Source? Join Hackaday and Tindie at the largest community-run Open Source conference in North America. We’ll be at the Southern California Linux Expo next week, and we want to see you there.
Hackaday and Tindie will be at SCALE Friday through Sunday, showing off the coolest parts of Hackaday, Hackaday.io, and our lovable robotic dog, Tindie. We’ll be handing out t-shirts and stickers, and we’ll be giving tours of the SupplyFrame Design Lab located just two blocks away from the convention center. The Design Lab is a crown jewel of our corporate overlord’s emphasis on Open Hardware, and if you want to see where the magic happens, this is your chance. We’ll be running tours of the Lab on Friday, so find the Hackaday and Tindie crew in the expo area around 3:40 PM.
Here’s something cool: We’re offering discounted SCALE passes, too. They’re 50% off using the code ‘HACK’ at this link. That’s $45 for four days of fun.
SCALE is much more interesting than I’m letting on here. Last year, I was absolutely befuddled by the Microsoft booth, and their stickers saying that ‘Microsoft (heart) Linux’. A few weeks later, and a day short of the best April Fool’s joke of all time, Microsoft said Cygwin Can Suck It. Somehow or another, the Linux Subsystem for Windows 10 made it to SCALE and nobody noticed. Let’s see what we find this year.
