Maker Faire visits Vienna

Maker Faire Vienna Austria LogoI was very exited to hear that the legendary Maker Faire will visit Vienna (see Maker Faire Vienna) and therefore Austria in 2016 for the very first time! Since its very beginning in 2006 Maker Faires all over the world stand for family centric festivals with a strong focus on delivering Do-it-Yourself skills to kids and adults. Its founding Make magazine represents a must-read literature for every tech loving and teaching dad (or mum). Every Maker Faire worldwide is a perfect place to meet fascinating people and their unique projects and to take part in tutorials to learn new skills and to open your mind for new ideas. Personally, I was always fascinated by the Make magazine and its community as it delivers the most positive and creative spirit cross all generations of people with the goal to open the minds to create and inspire new ideas. Make spirit not only covers areas such as electronics, coding, manufacturing but spans a much wider audience to design or art. So i am very curios how the start of the first Maker Faire in Austria will work out, but i am sure we will have a great time on 16. – 17. April 2016 in Vienna!
