Hi All,

Just a heads up that this year Open Source Hardware Camp will be
taking place over the weekend of Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th
September, returning to the Birchliffe Centre where we hosted OSHCamp
back in 2012.

Since we were last there the Birchcliffe has been subject to extensive
renovation, but still retains most of the pretty cool features of an
old Methodist Chapel. The main differences being that it's been
smartened up somewhat, is in a much better state of repair and has
more effective heating etc.

Those who came along in 2012 may recall that there is a hostel
adjoined to the Birchcliffe, with both shared dorms and private rooms.
If you're thinking of coming along this year and would like to stay
there, it's advisable to book early as rooms tend to go fast.


The plan is once again to have up to 12-13 talks on the Saturday and
6-8 workshops on the Sunday. A call for participation will go out in
Feb or early March, but suggestions and offers for talks and workshops
are very much welcome before then!

Other events running as part of Wuthering Bytes which may be of interest:

- Wuthering Bytes Festival Day, Fri 2nd Sept at the Town Hall

As with previous years, talks on a diverse selection of technical
topics, looking to the past and the future, with unique insights and
personal journeys etc.

- Open for Business, Mon 5th Sept at the Town Hall

This event organised by the BCS OSSG and Open Source Consortium ran
for the first time in 2015. For details see:

One really for GCC and GDB etc. hackers (and certainly not the faint
hearted!) For details see:
