The Brighton Hackerspace is a new community project to create a space for physical computing. We meet every Thursday to come together and work on our own projects, learn from one another and share knowledge and ideas.
Brighton Robotics and the Brighton Hackerspace have been asked, as part of the dConstruct festival, whether we would be willing to collaborate with Bristol Dorkbots and put on a pre-conference event on Wednesday 2nd September. The Bristol Dorkbot group have agreed and are currently figuring out a group project that they can do to bring down to Brighton for the event, where we can hold a sort of exhibition cum hack night for the two groups.
This is the first of what I hope will be many more, collaborations between Brighton Robotics and other electronics and robotics enthusiasts around the country.
I propose that alongside the regular Brighton Hackerspace hack night we get together to discuss what we should do for the event.
We currently have 3 options as I see it.
One, we turn it into a 'project night' where every member of the group who can make it to the event brings along the project (or projects) that they have been working on for the last 6-9 months. We could then have a few minutes each to talk about the project, it's inspiration and technicallities.
Two we come up with a group project that we can collaborate on in the hack nights and at other times as a special project for the dConstruct event.
Three - we do something else that one of you very clever and wonderful robotbrightonians come up with.
As with all robotbrighton events there will be plenty of beer to quaff and plenty of interesting people to chat to, so come along and be a part of something great.
