* The Online Open Source Hardware Building Session will be a hands on, novel beginner level workshop where participants will be putting together and executing a small electronics hardware project. As all participants will be mailed a “hardware kit”, participation is being limited to those who reside in the Netherlands with a maximum of 40 participants. Participants will be asked to share the address within the Netherlands to mail the hardware kit. To provide adequate time for the preparation and mailing of the hardware kits the end date for registration is December 7th 2020. As you can see, there is considerable effort and cost involved in preparing for this workshop. As such we expect that participants register for the workshop only if they are sure of to attend.
