“Open Source Hardware Camp 2016 will take place place in the Pennine town of Hebden Bridge. For the third year running it is being hosted as part of the Wuthering Bytes technology festival. Tickets are priced at £10/day and this includes lunch. […] We currently have 12 talks and 4 workshops confirmed, with the possibility of one or two more. Covering a diverse range of topics, including laser light synths, LoRaWAN and The Things Network, open source digital cinema (includes Axiom 4K open hardware cinema camera demo/workshop), and iCE40 FPGA development with Yosys and LabRTC. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing the Axiom camera and getting hands-on with the Yosys and Arachne-pnr powered open source FPGA toolchain. […] As in previous years, there will be a social event on the Saturday evening and OSHCamp is once again being hosted to coincide with the Wuthering Bytes technology festival. You’re encouraged to check out the website for details of other participating events, as there may be some of interest. E.g. the annual GCC, GDB and friends developer conference, plus the first ever LLVM Cauldron!”
