This Week in Community: TEDYouth, Software for Artists Day, Smart Home Projects, bitLab & MEETUPS!

Our community had quite a Smart Week

November 21, 2014

Hey there, bit’sters! We had a busy week in the bitosphere with workshops, live demos & presentations. If you missed these IRL meetups don’t fret because this week we also announced that we’re doing #HackYourHoliday Meetups in RadioShack stores across the country! Let’s take a look at the week that was.

 

#HackYourHoliday Meetups

That’s right! We’ve put together an awesome lineup of all star littleBits community/team members to host meetups at local RadioShack locations! And they start THIS WEEKEND! To find a full list of cities & RSVP, head to: meetup.com/littleBits

TEDYouth

The TEDYouth conference was held last Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum and the amazing Monika Wuhrer of Open Source Gallery was there to give live littleBits demos during the breaks!

 

Library Makerspaces Webinar

Last Tuesday we held our first education webinar! We were stoked to have innovator Brian Pichman of the Evolve Project give a presentation on how to start your own library makerspace.

 

Smart Home Projects

Lastly, we’d like to give an extra special shout out to three bit’sters whose projects are now featured with our new Smart Home Kit! Big thanks to Leslie Bush, DoguIn & Glenn Mossy for their epic contributions!
