Hoping for some hardware hacking? Get ready to be happy

While Portland is more readily associated with hipsters, we’ve got our fair share of hackers, as well. And hardware hackers, at that. That’s why it makes perfect sense that we’re a stop on Hackster Hardware Weekend Portland, this weekend. And if you’re into hacking hardware, you won’t want to miss it.

The Hackster Hardware Weekend is a celebration of makers, open source hardware and the Hackster community across America. From Seattle to NYC and everything in between, we are hitting the road driving an original DeLorean DMC 12 to run the coolest Hackathon & Meetup series of the year, with loads of hardware kits, amazing speakers, software freebies and great people.

Best yet, you also get to hack our Time Machine. Update our DeLorean with the latest sensors, electronics, radios and data service. Make Doc Emmet Brown proud and hack to the future!


We bring our 2-day hackathon to Portland on March 7th and 8th. We’ll provide food, tools, soldering stations, and hardware kits from Intel and other companies for your team to hack with. You’re also encouraged to bring any hardware you might need. Each event will kick off with workshops where you’ll get to know each other and the hardware. Then you can hack your way to glory!


The event will be held at the Portland State Business Accelerator. It begins at 10AM Saturday and runs through 8PM Sunday. Tickets are $19, but discounted tickets are available.
