something bigger

What other makers are saying

“I loved the event. We built the self watering plant and then brainstormed ideas on how much home automation can be built with simple hardware. Everyone built on each other’s ideas, to come up with something amazing."

"The fact that we were focused on learning while building software made for a really unique event experience. I also enjoyed working with other developers. We decided to pair program and worked on the problem together."
