Open Fest is the biggest and most anticipated Open Source Technology event in Bulgaria!

This year it will be held in Sofia Tech Park November 2nd and 3rd.

The site already has CFP link where you can submit your proposal for talk.

Olimex submitted proposal for the traditional Soldering Workshop.

This year we prepared very interesting Open Source Hardware kit: “Pimp your bike with Audi like turn signal lights”, here is teaser. We use x5 pcs 10mm round LEDs on bothe sides, total PCB length is around 20 cm.

This design is made purely analog, no processors, no programming. The design files will be uploaded on our GitHub account so anyone who has no chance to come can do his own version. Also we will have the kits on our web for sale after OpenFest.

On the workshop we will explain how it works, so you will learn what resistor divider is, what analog comparator is and how we achieve the Audi effect with the LEDs.

As we are preparing only 100 kits and there may be lot of people who want to participate, we solicit you to pre-register at info@olimex.com to have kit reserved.

As always our number of soldering irons are limited, so if you have your own, bring it to the workshop with you to speed up the process 🙂

Looking forward to see you at Open Fest!
