The Makerville Community

A place for makers, tinkerers, engineers and designers to talk shop


We had our inaugral conference in 2021. It was pretty awesome - especially the breadth of the topics! We had everything from how to use open source tools, talks about toolchains, open science toolkits, how an EMS works in the backend, and more! We are working to have another one this year - stay tuned for updates!

We used to have a forum hosted on Tribe that had some good articles - for example this post about the different ecommerce stores to buy electronics. We haven't yet found a new home for the forum - but you can check out the archive for old posts for now
