Tech Valley Makers Meeting – SUCCESS

December 4, 2012 at 5:20 pm Leave a comment

The Tech Valley Makers had their first meeting on Nov 28th, and it was a resounding success! Pulled from all over the Capital District, we had over 30 people show up at Union College to talk about Kickstarter, 3D Printers and the Raspberry Pi! My feet have not hit the ground since the meeting, because a group that size means there is a substantial demand for a Makerspace in the region, and there are some opportunities to make that happen sooner rather than later, given the amount of interest out there.

For now we are piggy-backing on a web site that was set up for a prior attempt to get a Makerspace in the region, and in the next few weeks we will ratify a formal name for the group which can be used for the non-profit and all official business. For now, much of the discussion is taking place at the Capital District Industrial Club web site.
