Hackaday Unconference Sells Out Within Days of Opening Up Sales to the Public

Hackaday Dublin Unconference

Hackaday, the most popular website read by engineers, makers and inventors that celebrates hardware and hardware hacks teams up with DesignSpark, the engineering community of RS Components (RS), to bring Hackaday's second annual conference to Europe.

This partnership marks the shared vision and continued collaboration of Hackaday and RS of bringing the hardware engineering world together to collaborate and learn about the newest developments in the field.

The conference is structured in the "unconference" style, where there is no set agenda, and all participants come prepared to present seven minutes about their latest passion project with the conference's talk schedule formulated at the onset of the day. This unique format encourages talks and collaboration on cutting-edge topics and projects happening in the engineering and maker world. Although Hackaday has held unconferences elsewhere in the world, including London, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco, this is the first of its kind in Ireland.

“We are proud to be supporting the first ever Hackaday Unconference to be held in Ireland,” said Mike Bray, Vice President of DesignSpark at RS Components. “The unconference concept is a unique one that should help to create an extra dimension to the event that encourages fun, innovation, collaboration and creativity. All of this makes it an excellent complement to what we believe in at DesignSpark.”

The Hackaday Dublin Unconference will convene on Saturday, 7 April from 13:00 to 21:00 at the Project Arts Centre in Dublin, Ireland. Technologists and engineers across the UK and Europe showed immense interest in the event, which sold out within days of opening up sales to the public.
