Objects of large opportunities

Friends of Fritzing – Potsdam, Germany
With the new funding comes a reconsideration of the goals of Fritzing. The initial workshop that kicked off Fritzing development in September 2007 proved to be a very fruitful experience: we gathered the physical computing crowd to discuss the general goals of the project. It is now time to review how far we got and to plan the next stage. Please take the opportunity to shape the future of physical computing Participants are invited to give a short presentation about their experiences and proposals, followed by group sessions to brainstorm future directions of Fritzing and Physical Computing in general. Plus two long nights of socializing.

In this workshop, similar in spirit to the first one, we will exchange experiences with the first releases of Fritzing and brainstorm how the work should continue. The main topics will be the three main use cases that we envision for Fritzing:

* documentation and sharing,
* pcb production,
* teaching physical computing.
