The Re:Make 2014 Agenda is Here!
You guys, Re:Make SF is almost a month away! Can you believe it? We’ve already shared our speaker line-up with you and hinted at some of the fun you can expect this time around. Now… it’s time to get to that agenda!
The day will be packed with a combo of panels, keynote presentations and demos. Plus, you KNOW there’ll be plenty of time for you to get your DIY on ;) Oh, and you can look forward to more photo booths than you can count! Of course, we can’t give away ALL the details just yet, so expect more to come. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite sessions below, but you’ll want to head here to get the full agenda and rundown of the event!
Need a quick reminder on Re:Make? We got you! Taking place September 12th and 13th in San Francisco, Re:Make is an event to celebrate and discuss how ‘making’ has changed over the past few years, thanks to our good friend, technology. The first day of the event is an invite-only conference. The second day is a maker festival open to the general public, with over 100 makers showcasing their products, hands-on DIY workshops and the ability for all attendees to make all kinds of fun projects… all for free!
Remember, it’s not too late to register! You can sign up for both days HERE!
