Maker faire is expanding to Europe!

There will be a mini maker faire in Continium in Kerkrade on September 7 & 8.

Details might follow here; meanwhile, look at their website for more info.

Due to the low number of available people we will not be attending the makerfaire with an ACKspace stand/demo.
