This forum post explains what should be done step by step to setup and use OLIMEXINO-STM32 board with Arduino IDE.

OpenFest 2018, LoRa technology and OSHW

First OpenFest was back in 2003, so this year this open source technology event had 15 years anniversary! As always it was nice place to see and talk to interesting people.

Vasil Kolev opened with nice retrospection on how the event started, the challenges to make it (OpenFest is one of the few events which builds all infrastructure, video, networking etc by the organizers and do not use external service providers) and how it evolved in the years to become the most popular open source event in Bulgaria.

Since 2011 Olimex was making traditional soldering workshop on every OpenFest. Lot of people held soldering iron for a very first time at these workshops, many of them got interested and continued with hardware. One of these guys is Leon Anavi, who got very commited to Open Source Hardware and start releasing his own boards! This year Leon, who is also the major motor behind Tuxcon conference in Plovdiv made the Soldering Workshop at Openfest!
