Open Hardware Summit: Hot Take/Resources

The Open Hardware Summit is the annual conference organized by the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) a 501(c)(3) not for profit charity.

It is the world’s first comprehensive conference on open hardware; a venue and community in which we discuss and draw attention to the rapidly growing Open Source Hardware movement.

After attending the 2023 Summit at NYU Law in New York City this year, I wanted to share a few resources:

  • Digital Goodie Bag: Contains materials from presenters

  • ohsummit Twitter: Provides log of key concepts and takeaways from the conference

  • Summit Discord: Conversation will continue on this server year-round; there are channels to ask presenters questions, request materials, and more

  • OSHWA Mastadon: the Open Source Hardware Association’s mastadon social account, where updates/takeaways from the conference were posted; conversation will continue year-round

  • 2023 Open Hardware Summit YouTube Channel: includes a listing of recorded talks/presentations from the conference

If you have any questions or would like to discuss any of the personal takeaways I have from the conference, please feel free to reach out to me directly here in this thread.
