Are you ready for OpenFest 2016? We will have the already traditional Soldering Workshop there – The GHOST of Open Source Hardware is waiting for you!


Tomorrow is Open Fest 2016 in Sofia! The is similar to FOSDEM yearly meeting of thousands of people in Bulgaria, who care about the open source technologies.

The program is here:

Beside the talk about our progress on the OSHW Laptop , we will have the traditional FREE Soldering Workshop there.

For this purpose we created special PCB named The GHOST of the Open Source Hardware 🙂

Come and have fun, the board is very easy to assembly. It has two LEDs and PIC microcontroller with capacitive touch button made as the OSHW logo. As soon as you touch it the GHOST ‘eyes’ start to glow slowly.

The PCB has pin so you can attach it to your cloths as badge. On top there is standard Microchip ICSP connector, so later you can modify the code up to your taste.

We will have limited number of soldering irons with us, so if you have your own, bring it with you to speed up the assembly and not make tails of people waiting to solder their kit.

    Hey, why you are not listed here in the workshops section:

    Is your workshop going to be on Saturday or on Sunday?

      because we want to verify how many people read our blog 🙂 joke aside I forgot to apply for workshop but later one of the OpenFest organizers asked should they provide some space for us like every year and I said yes, please 🙂
      The workshop will run both days until the 200 kits we prepared are all soldered and taken away
