The Hardware Hacking Area is lots of fun! No soldering experience necessary. I'll show you everything you need to know.
We'll be teaching zillions of people to make cool things, and we'll be demonstrating Brain Machines to everyone (which attracts a huge, enthusiastic, curious crowd to the area!).
The Faire is open to the public between 10am and 8pm on Saturday, and between 10am and 6pm on Sunday. We'll be hopping the whole time, with 40 solder stations happening at once!
The San Francisco Maker Faire is in the San Mateo County Fair Grounds. Please consider getting to the Faire by means other than by car. Last year there was an all-day traffic jam on 101, which made it take hours (yes, plural) to get past the Faire exit. From the Caltrain Hilsdale Station it is only about a few hundred yards walk north to the San Mateo County Fair Grounds. Here is a map: Hilsdale Station
Once at the Fair Grounds, look for the registration tent. Give your name to the friendly person there, and say you're helping with Mitch's Hardware Hacking Area in the Maker Shed, and they will give you the credentials. Keep in mind that registration may take awhile if there is a line.
Please show up at the Hardware Hacking Area a few minutes before your shift starts.
The Hardware Hacking Area should be easy to find once you get into the building that is being called the Maker Shed, which is a very, very large building. The Hardware Hacking Area will be one large corner of it.
If you have any problems at all, or any questions, please give me a call on my cell phone: 415-377-5993
