I'll be helping setup before Camp and tear down after Camp. During Camp I'll be organizing workshops at the Hardware Hacking Tent, giving soldering workshops all day and all night, leading an Arduino For Total Newbies workshop twice (using TV-B-Gone as an example project), and giving a talk on how to give workshops.

I have 2,500 Hackerspace Passports to promote everyone to visit hackerspaces around the world. Come find me at the huge Hardware Hacking Tent and grab one from me for €1 (what they cost me)!
