Kaiju Sushi in New Smyrna is looking to form a hacker/maker group that would meet weekly at their restaurant. The first meeting will be Tuesday, Sept 6 @ 7pm. Should be of interest to some of our students and alumni, especially those who took DIGA 231. You can learn more about the group in this blog post. As their announcement says:
Kaiju is hosting a hackspace for the New Smyrna, Deland, Daytona, Port Orange, and Ormond areas. We’re looking for talented young engineers, software developers, makers, and modders to team up with experienced Space Coast workers to build new projects. Our focus is to:
- Get you working with other talent to give your projects the momentum they need.
- Give you access to world-class speakers via video conferencing. We want to connect our local hackspace to other groups around the world so we can stay on top of technological and economic trends.
- Learn about patent writing, business incorporation, marketing, and all the tools you’ll need to start a technology business on a tight budget.
Networking, hardware hacking and sushi sounds like a winning combination to me!
