Open Hardware Happy Hour San Francisco

Open Hardware Happy Hour is an informal way to socialize, show off your projects, and talk about the world of hardware.

Mar 6 2024
06:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Studio 45
45 29th St
San Francisco, CA
United States of America


We welcome anyone interested in any kind of hardware from beginner to expert: Arduino DIYers, engineers, hardware start up founders, e-textile experimenters, open source hardware-curious folks, LED lovers, chip designers, 3D printing enthusiasts or robotics geeks.

If you’re working on something even vaguely related or you have a favourite open hardware device you want to show off please do bring it along. No presentations, no pitch decks, just projects and conversation.

This event is a collaboration between folks from Hardware Happy Hour SF, Hardware Happy Hour PDX, Crowd Supply, Hackster and Studio 45.

We will have drinks and snacks available courtesy of Crowd Supply and Hackster (huge thank you to both!).

Join us and nerd out about open source electronics! More details and RSVP.
