October is Open Source Hardware Month!

The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) has just announced that October 2016 is Open Source Hardware Month.  “OSHWA is inviting you to participate in events that will add clarity to the open source hardware definition, invite more people to contribute to the movement, and provide education around how to publish a project or product as open source hardware”.  More details are available here.

Of particular interest are the following events:

  • Documentation Days.  These are free, community organized events to document your most recent open source hardware project following the OSHW definition and guidelines.
  • OSHW Certification.  OSHWA will launch the first version of the open source hardware certification. This self certified open source hardware certification  will be administered by OSHWA.
  • Open Hardware Summit.  Scheduled for October 7th in Portland, OR, the annual Open Hardware Summit brings together professionals, artists and enthusiasts from across our community. Tickets are available now!

In the interests of full disclosure, the people behind Aerospace Maker, the site, YouTube channel, and social media presence are founding members of OSHWA.
