Ponoko Partners With Hackaday To Support Smart People Doing Smart Things
At Ponoko, our mission is to help hardware startup founders, CEOs, engineers and designers go from idea, to prototype, to product, to market 10x faster and with less cost than ever before. We also love seeing how hackers bask in the glory of building products instead of buying them, repairing items rather than trashing them, and raiding their junk bins for new projects every time they can steal a few moments away.
That’s why we’re partnering with Hackaday to sponsor The Hackaday Superconference, one of the greatest gatherings of hardware hackers, builders, engineers and enthusiasts in the world. From November 15-17, hundreds of engineers and engineering enthusiasts will gather in Pasadena, California, for talks and workshops along with the extemporaneous challenges, conversations and discovery that make Supercon the ultimate hardware conference.
Now in its fifth year, Supercon takes all the best conversations you’ve had about electronics, firmware development, industrial design, art, music and culture and packs them into three incredible days. This is where you hear the stories behind new and interesting feats of engineering— from prototypes and manufacturable designs, to one-off hardware art and products that have sold thousands. And that’s just the start of what you’ll find at this event.
What really makes Supercon so unique is the people who show up. You’ll meet people with clever, compelling, delightful and bizarre stories about hardware creation that will inspire you to get started on your next project. Building the future is exciting. And attending Supercon gives you a glimpse into what’s possible.
While the event is currently sold out, you can join the waitlist here. If you already have tickets and would like to meet our Founder/CEO Derek Elley at the event, please email hello(at)ponoko(dot)com and use “meet Derek at Hackaday” as the subject line to let us know you’ll be there so we can set up a time to meet.
