The power of open source hardware lies in the ability to build upon others’ work and good documentation is the key to making this happen. We believe that documentation best practices can increase contributions to open source hardware projects significantly. For this reason, we are hosting a collaborative event to arrive at an open source hardware documentation platform based on a set of shared standards.
Open Source Ecology is co-organizing the first event for defining documentation standards for the Open Source Hardware movement – the Open Source Hardware Documentation Jam, April 26-28, 2013, in New York City.
The event will be limited to about 75 people, and we are looking for open source hardware developers, sofware developers, web designers, interface designers, documenters, copywriters, storytellers, and facilitators. You may register at the link above. For questions or to contact the organizing team, email us – info at opensourcewarehouse dot org.
