Learn to solder!

Anyone can learn to solder! Even if you have never made anything in your life, you can learn this very useful and enjoyable skill. It really is fun!

Mitch Altman and Jimmie Rodgers and Florian 'overflo' Bittner and others will bring kits to make cool, practical, intriguing, hackable things that you can bring home after you make it.
We have taught tens of thousands of people how to solder all around the world.
We can teach you, too!
Of course, you can also bring your own projects to hack.
And if you have anything to fix, bring it by!
Get help, or give help. Or, just come by and hack.
Happy hardware hackers
