Welcome to Maker Faire Austin Town Hall Wiki. password=maker!


First off this is NOT OFFICIALLY SPONSORED by Make or OREILLY publishing. This is just an act of love by Silona - a huge fan of Maker Faire.


I'll announce the next meeting here! 


June 1st  6-9pm at la Madeleine on Lamar and 34th street. - Hope you can make it!


Well the meetup on Jan 27th went really well with over 35 people in attendance from various communities.  I think we will work on making this a regular event to help promote the Maker community spirit here in Austin.  Sherry loved and was greatful for all the feedback.  I think what stood out the most to me was how much everyone loves this event and is already figuring out how to make it even better for next time.  What a great bunch of DOers!
