MakeSF September Meetup

I spent last Sunday afternoon at the MakeSF Meetup with Artoo, this month it was held at the TechShop in Menlo Park in the heart of Silicon Valley. It’s a relatively new group and a spin-off of the Make Faire.

From the MakeSF website:

Our Mission
Meet with local people to discuss and show-and-tell new technology.

The goals are to:

  • Meet other local Makers
  • Share ideas, skills, and local resources
  • Create collaborations between engineers, makers, craft folks, artists, etc.
  • Get projects ready for Maker Faire, Burning Man or other nearby events
  • Get opinions or advice on project execution

There were around 20 people in attendance, but only one person had brought something to share, so I was encourage to do an improtute presentation on building and Artoo.

The TechShop also gave us a tour of the impressive facility.
